12-year-old sells Kool-Aid to raise funds for victims

Twelve-year-old Zach McGuire of West Toledo spent this past Father’s Day weekend selling Kool-Aid from the end of his driveway to passers-by on Sylvania Avenue to collect donations for the victims of the Millbury and Lake Township tornados. 

Calling his fundraising event “Kool-Aid for Tornado Aid,” Zach raised $191. Young McGuire will present the donations to Blessed Sacrament Parish. The funds will be channeled through Catholic Charities for distribution to those who lost virtually everything in the late night storm on June 5.

“I just wanted to help” stated Zach McGuire when asked why he decided to embark on his latest fundraising drive.

According to his father, Thomas J. McGuire, 52, “Zach has always had a giving heart. If he has a dollar in his pocket, he will try to give you two.”

Zach McGuire has conducted several fundraisers from his driveway since he was in second grade.

See the sun set on Maumee Bay and hear the Genoa American Legion Band at Oregon’s Haley Boardwalk every Friday night starting July 16.

The “See Sunset on Maumee Bay” will be held at the Bayshore and Stadium roads intersection (5760 Bayshore). At the the Oregon waterfront, there will also be music, food, a walk along the boardwalk, street performers, and arts and crafts.

A group of neighbors have been meeting at the Oregon Senior Center - with the hospitality of host Paula Benton - to plan for Friday nights on the Oregon Haley Boardwalk from July 16 through August 27. 

“Why are we doing this? To promote Oregon's waterfront and the Oregon waterfront community,” said organizer Sandy Bihn.

Bihn says the Oregon waterfront community is considered to be Oregon north of Cedar Point Road.
