MIDDLETOWN, Ohio — Three Middletown area businesses are accepting donated items that will be delivered to those impacted by Monday night’s tornadoes in the Dayton area, according to the Journal-News.

Water, toilet paper, toothpaste, toothbrushes, non-perishable foods, fans and generators are some of the “major needs,” said Jeri Lewis, community relations director at Kingswell Seminary, 1124 Central Ave. Items can be dropped off at Kingswell from noon to 5 p.m. today and noon to 5 p.m. Wednesday at the back entrance.

Appointments also can be made by calling Lewis at 513-649-9699.

The other two drop-off locations: Assured Automotive Repair and Discount Tire, 215 Charles St., Middletown; Barks n Bubbles, 420 Ohio 122, Madison Twp.

Lewis said a U-haul truck will be used to transport the items Thursday to The Greene, a shopping center off Interstate 675 in Beavercreek.

She said it’s important to show the “hands and feet of Christ” and it’s about “loving on people.”
