Centerville church delivers thousands of bins full of donations

CENTERVILLE, Ohio (WDTN) – It was an assembly line of charity as hundreds of bins were loaded into a semi.

The 2000 bins are going to families in need at five local school districts.

“I’ve had the pleasure of delivering some of these bins to some of our families,” said Jeremy Miller, Director of Curriculum and Instruction with Centerville City Schools. “Just the look on their faces of joy and thankfulness, I think, has said it all.”

For four years, Fairhaven Church has been giving back to the community.

Church members, neighbors, and businesses filled the bins with clothes and household items. Each bin was filled with items costing about $80 to complete.

“It’s been heartwarming to see somebody come in and take ten bins out,” said Pam Walker, Specialist of Events for Fairhaven Church. “Those ten bins is $800 that they have committed to.”

All of these bins will be distributed to families at Springboro, Centerville, Kettering, Franklin, and Northmont school districts.

Scott Inskeep, Superintendent of Kettering City Schools, was at Fairhaven Church Saturday to receive his school’s donation from the church.

“It’s very humbling to me to know that there’s the kindness that’s present in our community,” said Inskeep.
