WEST ALEXANDRIA, Ohio (WDTN) – A local business is working with the community to raise donations for those affected by the Saturday tornadoes.

Childers Home Improvement is a business in West Alexandria, Ohio that fixes roofing, drywall and other home improvements. This weekend, the owners hope to fix something more.

These locations will also accept items such as clothes, shoes, toys, books, toiletries and non-perishable food.
