Opportunities for Kindness

Mom trying to start new job with completely bald tire

We have a single mom trying to start a new job in need of one tire.  The current tire has steel belts showing through!  The tire size is hard to get and not cheap ($238.90 per tire company).  If she could afford to get different size tires and rims she would, but replacing the one tire is the cheapest option.  Donations can be made through the link on our website but please respond to this post to give us a heads up.  (Funds collected will be given directly to the tire company: Rimtyme 4615 Dixie Hwy, Fairfield OH 45014)

Loft beds for family tight on space

Does anyone have one or two loft style beds they would like to get rid of?  We have a family with limited space who wants their kids to be also able to have their own spot to study.  If so, please email Becky Lemon to arrange pick up at: [email protected]

Boys and girls 4t and 6t shorts

Accidents sometimes happen!  Can we replenish an emergency supply of new or gently used shorts? 

Urgent need for boys pullups

We have a need for many packages of Goodnight brand boys pullups size S/M.  A quick google search showed they should be available in Kroger, Target, Walmart, etc.  

Can our community help replenish school supplies?

Welcome back, Knights!  We hope you all had a great summer break!  We could use some help replenishing the school supplies we try to keep on hand for families in need. Most stores are pretty picked over but big sales will be coming up in the next week or so.  Be on the lookout for these items most often requested:  chromebook compatible earbuds AND headphones (both); Tab dividers; dry erase markers (thick); 1inch and 1.5 inch binders; Black sharpie markers (ultra fine, fine and thick); PLASTIC two pocket folders (all colors); "Classic Colors" 8 or 10 count markers (thick); 24 count crayons, 24 count colored pencils; fabric pencil pouches and plastic pencil boxes; Yellow highlighters; #2 pencils; pens; loose leaf notebook paper (wide and college ruled), composition notebooks (wide and college ruled). Drop off locations are the same as last year - most use the Landen Countryside YMCA.  Our bin is clearly labeled in the front lobby.  Thank you all! We are looking forward to a great year!

Kings student medical emergency

We have a Kings student that was in PICU due to an accident. Luckily, he is back home and doing well! The family could use help with upcoming medical bills.  Donations can be made directly the Neighborhood Bridges website. 

Let's help Kings Kloset get stocked for warmer weather!

Neighborhood Bridges would like to support Kings Kloset!  This is a wonderful resource which supplies free clothing to families in our district.  The Kloset is open the first Saturday of each month from 9am to 11am at Kings Education Center.  

Our goal is to update our Neighborhood Bridges community with SPECIFIC needs for the Kloset after these shopping days.  This will streamline donations and help keep the Kloset stocked with the items we know we need at any given time.

At this time, the Kloset could use all size kids/teen summer/spring clothing items.  Casual shorts and tops only. 

Let's help a kiddo with the costs to join an after school activity at Kings!

We have a student who would like to join one of our after school activities but needs help with the costs associated with that.  $30.00 will do it!  If interested in helping, please email me directly so we can coordinate.  [email protected] 

Laundry detergent

We have a large Kings family in need of laundry detergent.  Donations can be taken to our drop off locations or, since this is a bulky item, I would be happy to arrange pick-up ([email protected]).
