Local News

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – ER employees at Miami Valley Hospital made a donation to The Foodbank on Monday to support victims of the Memorial Day tornadoes.

According to the hospital, staff hosted bake sales and raffle baskets to raise the funds for the donation.

The $2,000 donation was officially made in a ceremony on Monday at the hospital.

“We heard it all over the news: ‘We need fruits and vegetables. We have babies who are impacted,’ and what can we go from a gluten-free, wheat-free, dairy-free perspective,” says ER Nurse Manager Tonja Fote. “Let’s do something for the Foodbank, that way they have the financial dollars they can allocate to the areas hardest-hit.”

The Foodbank CEO Michelle Riley was on hand to accept the donation.
