Help Us Make for Memorable Holidays

Your generosity last year provided a wonderful Holiday experience for a downtown family and we are so very thankful for your caring hearts and wallets. This season, we are expanding our giving reach, particularly with children in our community and have chosen 3 families as recipients of your bountiful gifts. Let me introduce them to you.

Jimica is a single Mom who works a job 6 days a week and struggles to provide any extras for her 4 children, ages 8 months to 12 years old. Chyrae and Nikia are sisters, both single parents, and have 10 children between them, ages 5-16.

We have a lofty goal of a gift for each child and with your help, we will be successful. Ginnie Schlosser is in the process of creating a gift list, and have been humbled as the Moms have items such as underwear, hats and other basics on their lists.

For those of you who wish to purchase a gift, please contact Ginny for some specific ideas. Last year, many of you offered a cash donation which allowed the parent to shop with us and enjoy that experience also. Cash donations can be provided by writing a check to the DRC and mailing to her (345 E 7th St. #1210 Cincinnati, OH 45202). She will also have a box at registration during our Holiday party on Tuesday, December 13th.

Our Downtown on the Move

Downtown Cincinnati is now home to over 6,000 residents, with more arriving every month as new condos and apartment homes are completed. The Downtown Residents Council works to develop a community atmosphere, conducts projects to improve the quality of life, and voices concerns of residents at City Hall.

We work closely with the Police Department on safety issues and Downtown Cincinnati Inc. and 3CDC on development and promotion efforts.

Help Us Stop Graffiti! Call it in! If you see graffiti on a building, sidewalk, rack, etc. please help us get rid of it ASAP. The longer graffiti stays up, the greater the invitation for more. Please contact DCI Ambassador Director Dave Thomas when you see graffiti. Dave will dispatch a team to photograph it, report it to the police and remove it. Dave's number is 513-383-5075.

Ambassador Hotline. To contact a DCI Safe and Clean Ambassador, call their hotline at: 513-623-3429. In an emergency, always call 911.
