When the March tornadoes ravaged parts of the South and Midwest, leveling small towns throughout Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky, Ransohoff employees began looking for a way to help the victims. Through both employee and company donations, Ransohoff was able to raise $3,500 for the Neediest Kids of All. The NKOA, founded in 1952, collects and disburses funds to children around the Greater Cincinnati tri-state area and has helped over 174,649 children within the last decade. Ransohoff's donation helped contribute to over $59,461 that was raised by NKOA to help the smallest victims of the tornadoes! Congratulations, Ransohoff, on a job well done!
