Donations raised after fire displaces families in Kettering

KETTERING, Ohio (WDTN) – A community is pulling together to support neighbors displaced by a fire.

Donations are being accepted this weekend at the Town and Country Shopping Center for people who were living inside the Highland Park Apartments. A unit of the apartment complex was destroyed by fire earlier in the week.

The drive for donations, known as “Kettering Helping Kettering” has already drawn donations of clothes, food, christmas gifts, and furniture.

“One of our employees lived in that building and we as a whole were able to come together and take care of his needs,” said Cory Morris, Owner of Griffin & Co. “But the other residents may not have an employer, friends, and fellow employees to come together and take care of them.”

The drop-off for donations runs Saturday until 9 p.m. There will also be a collection Sunday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. A fund for those displaced has also been set at Key Bank. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
