August School Supplies Drive

NEEDS collects school supplies and distributes the supplies to area schools.

This year our school supply drive will be 8:00 am on Monday, August 12, 2019 at Kenwood Baptist Church

Besides providing food for our needing neighbors, each year NEEDS also provides an assortment of school supplies to some schools in the Sycamore, Princeton, Madeira and Deer Park Districts.  The participating churches and organizations of NEEDS generously provide the supplies and one day in mid August, some eager volunteers gather to sort and pack boxes for each of the 15 or 16 schools that receive the supplies.

Although we will have an abundant supply of items to donate and eager volunteers to sort them.

We need:

  • Volunteers to sort, pick and pack the supplies for each school.
  • Drivers to deliver the school supplies.
  • Boxes (preferably with handles) are needed to pack the supplies into for distribution.

If you have access to a larger supply of these kind of boxes please email NEEDS or leave a message at the NEEDS hotline (513) 891-0850.

If you are available at 8 am on Monday, August 12, 2019 please contact NEEDS by email or phone 513-891-0850.


NEEDS new look!

How do you like our new website?

We at NEEDS love it.

We think it will keep you, our donors, board members, volunteers and community members better informed on:

  • our hours
  • how to make a monetary donation
  • what our current panty needs are
  • latest news and events
  • heart warming stories of the people we serve
  • thought provoking stories on poverty and hunger in the city of Cincinnati

Plus the new website is responsive meaning its easier to read on your cell phone and tablets!

Thanks to our volunteer web designer, April! We appreciate your hard work!
