Now Through August 31: Student Assistance Drive


NEEDS is holding our annual Student Assistance Drive!

In just a few weeks, students in the Deer Park, Sycamore, and Princeton districts will return to school – but many families in these districts cannot afford school supplies, or even necessities like food and clothing. NEEDS is seeking donations of gift cards and money to help purchase supplies for the beginning of the school year, and to provide students with warm winter clothing in December. You can help!

What to donate:
– Gift cards from stores such as Walmart, Target, and Kroger
– Visa and Mastercard gift cards
– Gas cards (many families live in areas where busing is not available)
– Check (marked for Student Assistance Drive)

Please mail your gift card or check to:
NEEDS
c/o Kenwood Baptist Church

Cincinnati OH 45236

You can also donate through PayPal on our website: https://cincyneeds.org/donate-volunteer/

Please donate by August 31. Thank you!
