The Hawkins family escaped injury when a severe storm ripped the roof off of their home on Glen Hollow Drive in Liberty Twp. in Butler County.

Lewis said a U-haul truck will be used to transport the items Thursday to The Greene, a shopping center off Interstate 675 in Beavercreek.

She said it’s important to show the “hands and feet of Christ” and it’s about “loving on people.”
