Mayor Looks for Heart Warming Stories of Those Who Went the Extra Mile to Help During the Ice Storm


During the December ice storm that left thousands of Fort Wayne residents without power, some for many days, Mayor Tom Henry continued to ask citizens to check on their neighbors to help ensure no one was in danger.

During and since the storm, Mayor Henry says he hears story after story of people who made big efforts to reach out to friends, family and even strangers. “People offered help and hope to individuals and families who were cold, tired, and hungry,” said Mayor Henry. “It’s these stories that make me proud to be part of this community.”

Saying he would like to acknowledge and possibly publicly recognize many of those who went to great lengths to help others, Mayor Henry asked citizens to send him a note on the City’s website to tell the stories they know, where warmhearted individuals made a difficult situation a little more bearable for others.

Submissions can be made until February 2 at www.cityoffortwayne.org/warmhearts. Mayor Henry would like to thank all of those who made such an effort and helped avoid a terrible storm becoming a tragedy.
