New Emergency Response Fund

Barberton Community Foundation has established an Emergency Response Fund to provide financial assistance to nonprofits responding to the broader social impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) in our community.
After Governor Mike DeWine’s announcement yesterday that all schools will close for three weeks, our community is asking an important question: how do we feed our children?

Many organizations are working to answer that question, including Barberton City Schools, where 77% of students qualify for free and reduced lunch. Superintendent Jeff Ramnytz stated that the schools will be organizing food drops at bus stops for families, and other organizations and businesses in town are stepping up as well.

“Barberton is made of resilient people who take care of their neighbors,” said Denny Liddle, Barberton Community Foundation’s board chair. “I am so proud and relieved that our city has an organization like the foundation that can respond quickly to meet our community where they are.”

Foundation Fund Donates new boat to City of Barberton Fire Department

Barberton Fire Department was able to purchase a new boat thanks to a generous donation from the City of Barberton Safety Services Fund held by Danny Sanchez at Barberton Community Foundation. 

Lt. Mike Beckman said the fire department desperately needed a boat like this. “It’s quick, versatile, and deployable which is important. We can fill it up using the air at the station or off the truck,” he said. The boat is made of a heavy durable material, and has many straps for places to hold onto. When not in use, it collapses to the size of a duffle bag for easy storage on a truck. The boat was built by Phoenix Safety Services in Ohio. 

Lt. Beckman explained that the boat could be used in many instances, such as ice rescue, in the canal, or during a flood. “We have a larger metal boat, but we can’t use that in knee deep water. With this boat, we can walk beside it, or  row it,” he explained. 

During the June floods Lt. Beckman said they received multiple calls for rescue. “In flood situations, a boat like this is handy for multiple rescues as we work down a street. Even in shallow water, you can’t always see where you’re walking. You don’t know where a curb or hole could be. Now we can help elderly or disabled individuals get out of their homes more safely.” 

Lt. Beckman continued, “This boat has made our job a lot easier, so thank you to the Foundation and Danny Sanchez with the Safety Services Fund for making this possible. We really appreciate it.”   

Danny Sanchez, from Casa Del Ranchero, said he had the idea to start a fund because he wanted to give back. “Both the Barberton fire and police have been coming to our place for years. We just really wanted to give back and do something for them.” Danny typically hosts a golf tournament every year to support his fund. “It has done more and grown bigger than I ever thought it would. Everyone wanted to get involved.”
