The MSPC Missions Committee and the Board of Deacons ask for your support with the NEEDS Student Assistance Drive NEEDS (North East Emergency Distribution Services) is holding a Student Assistance Drive the second week of August! This combines the annual School Supplies Drive & the HUGSS Drive (Hats, Underwear, Gloves, Socks, Sweats) into one. Last year, during the pandemic, the donations to schools changed to gift cards from Target, Walmart, Meijer, Kroger & Kohl's. The gift cards allowed the staff at 17 schools to purchase school supplies, plus personal items such as underwear, socks, soap & shampoo that were urgently needed.
Please consider donating a gift card from one of the locations listed above. You can also write a check to NEEDS & the volunteers will purchase gift cards on your behalf. You can mail your check or gift card to: NEEDS, 8341 Kenwood Rd. Cincinnati, OH 45236. Donations can also be made by giving through Paypal on the NEEDS website, CincyNEEDS.org. OR Place Gift cards or monetary donations in the acrylic box in the Narthex and MSPC will deliver to NEEDS. Mark the donation for the Student Assistance Drive. Response is needed by Sunday, August 15th! Thank you.
