Meeting of August 4:
The speaker was Jackie Allen, Director of March of Dimes, Ohio Chapter, which covers an eight county area. The March of Dimes was started in 1938 by FDR to raise funds to fight polio. The goal was to raise one dime per family in the US through a radio campaign by entertainer Eddie Cantor. The funds that were generated helped lead to the eradication of polio by the early 1950's, and funds are now used for prevention of the disease. In addition, March of Dimes now focused on other medical needs such as birth defects, infant mortality, and premature births. (One of eight babies born in Ohio are premature). The March of Dimes is responsible for the development of ultrasounds, and PKU tests for babies. March of Dimes is a 501(c)(3) organization, and the money raised locally is used locally. One of it's fund raisers is an annual spring walk, with about 2500 participants. Another fund raiser is a dinner and auction call "Signature Chefs, Dayton" on October 12. There is always a need for donations of items such as blankets, wipes, pacifiers, bibs, diapers and small toys, plus larger items such a car seats and cribs for their auctions. There are also many opportunities for volunteering to assist with their events and functions. For more information, see the website at http://www.marchofdimes.org/ohio/
