As of noon Wednesday, a boil advisory remains in effect for all of the City of Dayton, Montgomery County and Trotwood water customers after seven tornadoes touched down on Memorial Day.

The Chamber wanted to do something to help Dayton residents affected by the tornado, Camaren Sloan, from the Chamber of Greater Springfield, said.

“Dayton is a great city, it’s our neighbor,” Sloan said. “We want to be as supportive as we can.”

Those interested in donating bottles of water can bring the donations to the Chamber offices, located in the Commerce Pointe building at 20 S. Limestone St. Suite 100.
