DARN Response To Coronavirus
DARN has received multiple requests asking how best to support us as we respond to the needs in our community during these uncertain times of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Because the situation is fluid, we are looking at how we might best support community members in both the short term and the long term.
The first concern has been about feeding children who would normally get their meals at school. Bexley City Schools has announced "The district will be providing food (breakfast and lunch) for students that need it." As a result, DARN will focus our attention on dinners, weekend meals, toiletries and cleaning supplies. We are seeking donations to meet this need.
Based on previous DARN food programs, we estimate the cost will be $20,000 between now and end of May. If you would like to help, you can make a monetary donation to DARN by clicking the above donation button, here on website, or by mailing a check made payable to DARN c/o Bexley Recreation Department, 165 North Parkview Avenue, Bexley, OH 43209. An additional option is to purchase Kroger Gift Cards. If you would like to purchase Kroger Gift Cards, please provide them in $25 increments. The Kroger Gift Cards can be dropped off personally to Kelly Salmon, at 884 South Remington Road, or Marguerethe Jaede, at 822 Pleasant Ridge Road, both in Bexley, OH.
Thank you in advance for your generous support. Bexley has always embraced DARN's motto of using community resources to meet community needs.
