 DAYTON, OH - Montgomery County Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services (ADAMHS) sponsored 1880 Candle Co. donation ceremony to the Oregon District Business Association on August 28, 2020 at 9:30 AM.   

 Earlier this month ADAMHS partnered with 1880 Candle Co. to sell candles to the Dayton community to be used during the Nine Minutes of Silence on August 4, 2020, in memory of the Oregon District mass shooting anniversary. The candle sale fundraised $6,130 for the Oregon District Business Association, in efforts to aid a financial recovery to businesses in the Oregon District.      

 The Executive Director of ADAMHS, Helen Jones-Kelley stated, “The opportunity to be a title sponsor for the nine minutes of silence means so much for ADAMHS. Those nine minutes helped illuminate both the memory of that night but also the path forward.”  

 ADAMHS hopes to continue supporting the Oregon District very year during the mass shooting anniversary, by being a title sponsor of fundraising initiatives.
