Local News

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN)  On Saturday a workshop was held to help people with suspended driver licenses get reinstated. McKinley United Methodist Church in Dayton offered several different social services.

They helped people with suspended driver licenses get their BMV reinstatement fees reduced, or even waived completely. Other services offered with the workshop included voter registration and getting parents back in touch with their children.

The pastor of the church explained why they want to help. Pastor Peter Edward Matthews says, “I think there was a time when the church was the moral core, the center of the community. And we’re happy to open our doors. We have the space. We know people who are looking for their basic dignities sometimes get crunched during the week.”

Pastor Matthews thinks there were close to 100 people who stopped in for help.

Reinstatement fees have been waived for anyone who stops in before July 31st, after approval by the state legislature.
