Ottawa County Organizations Partner to Aid Residents in Need

Numerous Ottawa County organizations have teamed together to try to help those in the community with long-term needs due to the recent flooding.  Those organizations include:

  • The United Way in Ottawa County
  • WSOS
  • The Salvation Army
  • West Ohio Conference, Maumee Watershed, United Methodist
  • Village of Oak Harbor
  • City of Port Clinton
  • Ottawa County Emergency Management Agency
  • Ottawa County Department of Developmental Disabilities

 

The Ottawa County Long-Term Recovery Committee (The Committee) serves as the single point of contact for residents with needs.  The Committee will work to match residents to available resources to assist them in recovery from the flood.

The Committee is urging residents to reach out to your neighbors that may have been affected by the flooding and ensure their recovery needs are being met.  Those that need assistance should call WSOS at 419-734-2652 (ext. #1).

The Committee has limited funding currently available, but will be working through all cases to determine how best to help each resident.  Residents continue to need help with appliance replacement, water damaged item removal, furnace damage, air conditioner damage, water heater damage, and even in some cases structural damages. 

The Committee is accepting donations to the Community Disaster Fund, managed by the local United Way office.  These funds will be just one of multiple resources used to assist our residents in need.  The Committee will accept new appliances in addition to cash donations.  Anyone willing to make a contribution should contact Chris Galvin, area director, United Way in Ottawa County, with any questions at 419-734-6645 or chris.galvin@unitedwaytoledo.org.
