Water distribution centers set up across area

BLADE STAFF

A few fine Lima residents are organizing a water drive today and plan to bring cases of water to a West Toledo Kroger to give out water to folks who need it.

Beth Edwards, who is spearheading the drive, said she hopes to recruit a few more drivers before the trek north, and anticipates bringing more than 100 cases of water. At 2 p.m. she's asking people to drop off donations at Chief' Super Market, 2100 Harding Hwy. Once their vehicles are loaded with as much water as they can get, they will bring it to Kroger, 4533 Monroe St., and give it away for free. They expect to be in Toledo by about 5 p.m.

“I feel like Toledo is just like our sister city,” Ms. Edwards said. “There are so many people in our community with family and friends in Toledo, there's got to be something we can all do to help out.”
