School Supplies!

We are starting to take names for our Back-to-School Program. Each year NSI offers free school supplies to those in our services are to prepare them for a new school year. We expect to surpass 350 backpacks in 2018. We are asking for your support in supplying the essentials needed for students to succeed.

Please see our post about Back-to-School for the grade breakdowns for supplies

    Hygiene Products

                Our neighbors are in need of toilet paper, feminine products, razors, soap, shampoo/conditioner, shaving cream, etc. These products are expensive and cannot be purchased with SNAP benefits (food stamps). Our neighbors need your help! Please contact us if you’re interested in volunteering or making a donation!

Email mailto:info@neighborhoodservicesinc.org or call 614-297-0592 to coordinate a donation drop-off!

Currently on Wednesdays, 10AM-1PM

                The clothing room is open and in need of additional volunteers to staff it. If you are interested on helping on another day than Wednesday, please let us know and we will be open on that day also!  Neighbors rely on our clothing room for gently used clothes and household items. Please contact us if you’re interested in volunteering or making a donation!

NSI Food Pantry on Mondays-Thursdays, 10AM-1PM

We are looking for help this summer for our regular pantry hours! We are open Monday-Thursday with volunteer shifts 9:00AM-11:30AM and 11:30AM-1:30PM each day. Volunteers perform a variety of duties, from stocking pantry shelves to checking neighbors in, walking with them through the pantry, loading cars, and clean-up at the end of the day. Volunteers over 18 will need to sign a waiver on their first shift, and volunteers ages 14-17 will need to have a parent or guardian sign for them.
