As I posted the other day, there are widespread power outages here in Central Ohio. Fortunately we have our power back on, but there are still thousands that don’t. As of Wednesday AM there were still over 100,000 in Franklin County without power and over 10,000 in Delaware County without power. The power company has crews from neighboring states to help restore power, but it is not a quick process. Monday there was no ice to be found anywhere. Yesterday when I was online at our local news website I read this blurb on Whole Foods:
ICE, WIFI & CELL CHARGING AT WHOLE FOODS
Between 8 and 9 p.m. Tuesday, both Whole Foods locations, Lane Avenue in Upper Arlington and one in Dublin on Sawmill Road, will be giving away free ice to anyone who needs it. There is a maximum of 50 pounds per customer. Ice also will be available around 10 a.m. Wednesday. Plus, Whole Foods Market in Dublin has outlets to charge cell phones and free WIFI.
What a great thing to do for the community! An update last night on the 11:00 PM news said that Whole Foods has changed that to giving ice out all day (Wednesday) today, too, and every day until power is restored.
What a wonderful thing to do to help out the members of the community through a very tough time.
