A Cincinnati printing business is taking action to help 12 families who were displaced by an apartment fire in Delhi Township on Sunday. The fire took place at Glenhaven Apartments around 2:40 a.m. Witnesses reported seeing smoke billowing from the building, and while no one was injured, the families lost everything in the flames.
Ally Magiliano, owner of ASAP Custom Prints and Apparel, was alerted to the fire by a neighbor at around 2:30 a.m. Despite attempts to use fire extinguishers, the smoke was too thick to allow access to the affected floors. Magiliano immediately sprang into action and started using Facebook to gather donations for the victims, including clothes, toiletries, sheets, towels, and kids’ items. She is also collecting donations at her print shop, emphasizing the need for school supplies and clothes for the children to get through the next week.
Magiliano’s efforts are just one part of a larger community effort to support these families in their time of need. Delshire Elementary School is gathering gift cards to help parents with food and gas as they work with the Red Cross. Anyone with donations can take them to ASAP Custom Prints and Apparel or Delshire Elementary School. The community is coming together to support these families in any way they can.
