NEEDS is holding our annual Student Assistance Drive!
Each year, NEEDS collects donations of gift cards from Target, Walmart, Kroger, and Meijer. These gift cards enable staff at 17 local schools to purchase school supplies for needy students, as well as personal items such as underwear, socks, and hygiene products that are urgently needed.
Please consider donating a gift card from one of these stores. You can also write a check, and our volunteers will purchase a gift card on your behalf.
Please mail your gift card or check to: NEEDS c/o Kenwood Baptist Church 8341 Kenwood Rd Cincinnati OH 45236
