Founded at this location in 1907

Inside Billy Leachman's Chophouse
on a cold day in December,
George Baker, Harry Shunk
and C.C. Philbrick
(publisher of THE OHIO SUN)
worried about how the
needy children of the area
would keep warm during the winter.
Inspired by the cries of a newsboy
on the cold street corner, the men organized
a paper sale to raise money for the needy.
Every penny raised went to charity
and since then,
the second Saturday in December has been
the Charity Newsies Paper Sale Drive Day.
