Businesses step up to aid W.V. flood victims

GROVE CITY, OH (WCMH) — Dan Vance grew up in Man, West Virginia, a town in Logan County where a flood in 1972 killed more than 100 people.

Vance has lived in Ohio for 30 years now, but he and his wife both still have family in Logan County and elsewhere in West Virginia. He’s devastated by the recent flooding.

While Logan County is not one of the areas hardest-hit by the flooding, Vance still wants to help. He and the owners of the business where he works, Command Heating in Grove City, plan to drive a truckload of supplies and donations to West Virginia this weekend.

“There’s nothing that can take care of what’s going on down there,” Vance said. “Everybody needs to help. No matter what, if we can help a little bit, that helps.”

Anyone who wants to donate or help out can bring their donations to Command Heating in Grove City.

On the list of requested items:
Bottled water
Nonperishable food
Diapers/formula
Bleach
Brooms/mops
Shovels
Bleach wipes
Hand sanitizer
Toiletries
Triple antibiotic ointment
Work gloves
Buckets
Large trash bags
