Samaritan's Purse has wrapped up their operations in Vandalia, but there are still many great organizations out there to partner with. Find one that fits your skill set and schedule.
1. St. Vincent DePaul Dayton needs help sorting donations. Sign up to serve on weekdays at their warehouse on Edwin C. Moses Blvd, or on weekends at their Apple Street facility.
2. The Christian Life Center is actively assisting with cleanup. Visit their website to learn how you can get involved.
3. Montgomery County Volunteer Reception Center is now open at Sinclair Community College, (Building 20, 220 South Edwin C Moses, enter off 5th St). Volunteers can register and be matched to organizations with specific volunteer needs. Open seven days a week, 8:00 AM-6:00 PM. Please bring picture ID. All types of assistance are needed: licensed professionals in skilled trades, medical and veterinary fields, as well as individuals and companies who own and operate equipment (everything from chainsaws to heavy equipment). For more information, call 937-512-5700.
4. Montgomery County Ohio Relief Update is a website that's updated daily with an overview of what's happening in the relief effort, as well as other ways to get involved.
Fairhaven will provide financial support to area agencies assisting people with victims’ housing and transportation needs like rent for housing, insurance deductible assistance, car repairs not covered by insurance, etc.
To make a financial contribution, text relief and an amount to 937-202-4050; give to Fairhaven online and select 2019 Storm Relief; or write a check to Fairhaven Church with storm relief in the memo.
We will also share specific needs through our Community United for Kids (CU4K) emails. If you are not a part of CU4K, but would like to receive emails, you can sign up on our website or email cu4K@fairhaven.church

Thank you for your overwhelming generosity in the tornado relief efforts. We're making a difference! The needs of our partners and the people we’re serving are changing daily. The latest update is below.
Moving forward, we will post smaller, more frequent updates on our website and Facebook pages and send out bigger, more significant updates via email. If you want to contribute in any way, we recommend checking those places first for up-to-date information.
The churches and relief organizations closer to the destruction are doing a great job on the front lines of the relief effort, and it's an honor to work together with them as the body of Christ.
We’re listening to our partners and collecting the items that serve them best. You can bring these items to any of our locations. If you have other items to donate, there are a number of other organizations collecting items to serve people with different needs. (A great option near our Centerville Campus is the new Sinclair Community College campus at 5800 Clyo Road.)
Thanks again for all the ways you’re supporting those affected by this disaster. Together, we’re helping people find hope!
