Local Schools Partner with NEEDS

NEEDS would like to thank three local schools for their support!

  • Just before Thanksgiving, families and faculty at Montgomery Elementary School donated over 600 food and personal care items to the NEEDS pantry.
  • Students from E.H. Greene Middle School not only held a food drive to support NEEDS and other groups, but made a trip to the NEEDS pantry to help organize donated items.
  • Madeira Elementary School welcomed NEEDS volunteers with colorful signs…and so much food that it could barely fit in the car!

NEEDS pantry coordinators Janie and Maureen say that it’s heartwarming to see young people eagerly serving others. These students’ energy and enthusiasm are infectious! NEEDS is so grateful for the generosity of families and faculty at each school.

You can drop off your donation on Giving Tuesday from 9:00-4:00. (Can’t make it that day? No problem – donations can be dropped off at Kenwood Baptist Church any Monday-Thursday.)

2. Share your time. NEEDS is open to serve our community every Tuesday and Thursday from 9:00-1:00. We need volunteers to staff our pantry and desk each week, greeting our clients and fulfilling requests.
