NEEDS Helps Elementary Students Stay Warm

Jan Deters presents a check at Evendale Elementary.

As many of us bundle up against this month’s winter storm (or stay cozy inside!), other families in our community struggle to afford much-needed winter clothing. Thanks to the generosity of our donors during the Student Assistance Drive, NEEDS was recently able to help! NEEDS volunteers delivered gift cards and funds to four local elementary schools – Stewart, Evendale, Sharonville, and Sycamore – so that school officials could help to provide underprivileged students with warm clothing for the winter.

During the month of October, NEEDS provided food to 87 families – for a total of 323 people!

NEEDS also provided emergency financial assistance to seven families, distributing $2887.69 to cover rent and utilities.

Current Pantry Needs

The NEEDS pantry continues to be busy. It’s not unusual for us to have cars waiting in our drive-through when we open, and we often serve as many as 16 families in a day. However, the early fall is one of the most difficult times to keep the pantry stocked, as schools and businesses often don’t plan food drives until closer to Thanksgiving.
