Local author donates book proceeds

Rescue mission donation

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – A local author is donating proceeds from his new book to the Rescue Mission of the Mahoning Valley.

Joe Dragovich wrote the book, “The Empty Hook.” The mission receives $5 from the proceeds of every copy sold. The books are sold for $10.

Directors say the rescue mission is already close to capacity and in desperate need of the funds.

A special performance was held Saturday to kick off the holiday season for families living at the mission. Dragovich also gave a book reading.
