Recently Filled Needs

Family with limited transportation in need of a pool pass


Seeking donations for a UA family with four children under 13 to purchase a family pool pass for summer 2024. Because of transportation barriers, the UA pool is one of the only opportunities for the kids to see their classmates and enjoy outdoor fun while school is out of session. The family's income is limited, and even with a discount, most other recreation is cost-prohibitive.

Family of 7 in need


A family of 7 is facing food scarcity.  Gift cards to grocery stores and gas stations would be much appreciated to help them through the summer months.

Family in need of furniture and beds


Upper Arlington family moving from one apartment to another needs beds and furniture for their new apartment in UA.  They are moving on March 28 and would like the items delivered at that time or after.
