In November, Ohio's Community Action Agencies received a total of $50 million through the Home Relief Grant to help those who are behind on their mortgage, rent or other housing-related bills due to the pandemic >>> LISTEN NOW

WARREN COUNTY (Source: WKBN) — If you drove past the Trumbull Plaza on Monday, you might have noticed a parking lot full of cars.
ALLEN COUNTY (Source: Hometown Stations)— You may remember that the ABATE of Ohio group had to cancel their annual toy run, but that did not stop them from buying toys for children.
While the in-person toy run was canceled, ABATE of Ohio was able to hold a drop off toy run this fall. Monday afternoon, the organization delivered gifts to the West Ohio Community Action Partnership that they bought from funds raised from the drop-off toy run to give 100 kids. The numbers were down by 20 kids from last year as a result of not having an in-person toy drive, but some people stepped up to the plate to help out the organization.
