Downtown Dayton

Today we delivered 2,500 holiday goodie bags to local organizations: Boys & Girls Club of Dayton, Ronald Mcdonald House Dayton Childrens Hospital, House of Bread, Dayton Metro Library, K12 Gallery and TEJAS, Greater Dayton RTA, Wesley Community Center Dayton, YWCA Dayton and We Care Arts.

These goodie bags were put together to give out to the visitors of our planned Dayton Drive-Thru Children's Parade in Lights, which we made the conscious decision to not hold for the safety and health of our community.

But we're grateful for Dayton Holiday Festival sponsors who made this gift bag possible and who continue to support bringing holiday cheer to many throughout our community.
There's still holiday cheer to be had! Visit www.daytonholidayfestival.org for things still safely happening in Downtown Dayton.

Sponsor thanks to: Dayton Power & Light - DP&L, White Allen Chevrolet, CareSource, Dayton, Ohio - City Government, Dayton.com, Dayton Children's Hospital, NECA/IBEW Electrical Professionals, and Junior League of Dayton
