SPRINGBORO, Ohio (WDTN) — A local business is thanking city officials by donating doughnuts and other bakery items during the cold temperatures.

Mike Hemmert, owner of the Donut Haus Bakery, tells 2 NEWS they plan to donate several dozen doughnuts to the city’s police and fire departments.

He said they’ve already given several dozen doughnuts to the Springboro Service Department — which handles snow removal during snowstorms.

Hemmert says he’s grateful for what they do during hazardous conditions.

As for the snow — it started at around 5 a.m. in Springboro. 14 crews were out salting major roads, according to Vince Murphy, the city’s Service Director.

“Sunshine should help dramatically. Hopefully if we get some clear skies we should be in good shape,” he said.

Hemmert tells 2 NEWS the snow doesn’t have too much of an impact on business — it’s the bitter cold temperatures that can force sales to drop.

“When we have that. We have the wind chills and that kind of stuff, people tend to stay home moreso in that.”

The clientele at The Donut Haus was willing to brave through the snow covered roads to be able to order a doughnut.

“We always stop over here. They get to come over here a lot more than I do.”

Landen, a fourth grader at Dennis Elementary, says he has a full day planned.

“I’m going to go to my grandpa’s, and then I’m going to go see my baby cousin and my cousin.”

Randy Eldridge, Landen’s grandfather, says the snow allows him to spend time with the people who are most important in his life.

“To be able to spend time with my grandkids. I look at it as an opportunity. We’ll have an adventure today of some kind.”
