Current Pantry Needs


Summer is always a busy time for the NEEDS pantry. Families in need do not have access to free school breakfasts and lunches for their children, so they turn to the pantry for help. By September, our shelves are looking emptier than usual!

Donations can be dropped off at Kenwood Baptist Church during our open hours (Tuesday and Thursday 9:00-1:00). If you would like to arrange a drop-off on another day, please call (513) 378-8767. Thank you!

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
8341 Kenwood Rd
Cincinnati OH 45236

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

Please donate by August 31. Thank you!
