The Dayton region has a reputation for generosity and banding together in tough times to help one another. That’s been true this year as it was more than 100 years ago when a flood devastated the community. But social distancing can be isolating and make it hard to know how your neighbor has pitched in. That’s why throughout the month of December, the Dayton Daily News will tell the stories of people who have persevered and inspired others during this challenging year. Tell us who inspired you in 2020 by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
