Dale Foundation provides food and winter clothing to Warren families

Posted: Updated:

WARREN, Ohio - A local man's legacy was continued at the Family Mission in Warren Saturday by providing food and winter clothing to families in need.

More than 200 bags of food, including a gift card to buy a turkey for Thanksgiving dinner, were given out to those in need through The Dale Foundation. The foundation, whose letters stand for Do A Little Extra, was founded in memory of Dale Settle Jr. who always did extra to help others.

The 22-year-old graduated from Newton Falls High School and attended college in Canton. He was shot September 2011 during an armed robbery after he and others were leaving bible study in Canton.

His last act on earth was one of love and forgiveness. Dale's mom Sharon Lane said her son Dale acted to save his friends, and even asked for forgiveness for the ones who killed him before he died.

Lane said her son's relatives and friends are extending a hand now in hopes of making the world a better place that her son had strived to help. The foundation gave away donated coats, new gloves and hats to families.

Dale's sister, Jackie Braccio, hopes others feel the warmth of Christ's love and that they will pay the gift forward to help others.

Braccio said the act of kindness doesn't have to involve buying something for someone, but includes doing something to help someone. She hopes that when people read her brother's story, they will be inspired to live their life helping others.

Amy Seene and Nicole Montgomery, who received help through the foundation, said they were thankful for the bags of food and food for thought. Seene said she was moved by Dale's story she read online, and added it is moving to see his family take a tragedy and turn what happened into doing good for others.

Donations can be made to help others through the Dale Settle Jr. Foundation website at www.dalesettlejr.com
