KETTERING, Ohio (WDTN) - An eight-year-old is hosting an event in Kettering to help raise funds for SICSA's roof.
Ella Wish is asking people to fill a giant dog bowl with coins for a new roof for the non-profit organization's "Raise the Woof" campaign.
SICSA needs $50,000 for the project after the roof suffered water damage and started leaking this year.
Ella's fundraiser runs from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Donato's Pizza located at 3959 Far Hills Avenue in Kettering.
One hundred percent of the proceeds will go directly to SICSA's roof rebuilding campaign.
There will also be a collection box if you'd like to donate items to animal shelters.
Ella will turn 9 on December 11th and is hoping to collect 900 items for local animal shelters by her birthday. She's already surpassed her goal, collecting more than 1,550 items, and she isn't stopping there.
