Cincinnati Coupons Relief Efforts for Tornado Victims

I have partnered with local businesses in Cincinnati to begin collecting donations for the victims of the tornado that impacted our community on Friday, March 2.

Cherry Grove/Eastgate – LaTosha’s Cutting Edge Salon, 482 Ohio Pike (Beechmont), next to Verizon across from Olive Garden. Their phone number is (513)528-3343. Their hours are Sunday-Monday Closed, Tuesday 10am – 8pm, Wednesday 12pm – 8pm, Thursday 10am – 6pm, Friday 10am – 5pm and Saturday 9am – 4pm.

Fairfield - Honda of Fairfield, 858-1000, located at 4567 Rt. 4 across from Jungle Jim’s. This is the ATV dealership. Their business hours are M-F 10-7 and Sat. 10-4.

KenwoodBlue Cocoon located at 9393 Montgomery Rd is now collecting donations. They are located directly across the street from Montgomery Inn on the lower level. Their contact number is (513) 791-1089. Their store hours can be found at BlueCocoonBaby.com!

MilfordUlmer’s Auto Care, 700 Lila Ave (corner of Rt. 50 and Lila across from Speedway, next to By Golly’s) and can be contact at (513) 831-7499. Be sure to use the Customer Entrance to drop off your donations M-F 7:30am – 6 pm

I’m currently accepting donations to give to directly to the tornado victims and dropping off at the Red Barn Flea Market who will then disburse the donations to the tornado victims of Moscow, Bethel, Hamersville and Felicity.

Currently the need is:

  • cleaning products (sanitizers, gloves, thick garbage bags, bleach, brooms, hand towels, paper towels, etc.)
  • furniture (bed frames, mattresses, dressers, kitchen tables, chairs, end tables, etc.)
  • household items (imagine you lost everything and the things you would need – kitchen items, blankets, sheets, picture frames, area rugs, lamps, towels, etc.)
  • refrigerators, stoves, freezers, washer and dryers, tv’s – must be in working condition
  • shovels, rakes and other basic hand tools for clean up

If you’d like to make monetary donations to me I’ll then take these donations and give to the neighboring community to give out as needed. Donations can be made via paypal to Marci@CincinnatiCoupons.net.

Here are a few photos that I had a chance to take yesterday while I was helping to clean up in Moscow.

Kashich’s decision not to ask for federal assistance at Cincinnati.com.

If you are a local Cincinnati or Northern Kentucky business and would like to help with the efforts please shoot me an email at Marci@CincinnatiCoupons.net. I am currently looking for businesses to host donation drives where folks can simply pull up and drop off items.

    You have inspired me, I live in Southern Ohio and work at a Medical Center in Ashland KY. We have started a donation drive at work for the tornado victims in West Liberty KY. I just went thru my stock pile and I am able to donate over $200.00 retail worth of items. Also at CVS this week, great prices on cases of water and (8) roll paper towels ..
