Poverty is everywhere. It’s not just impacting the inner city anymore; it’s becoming more prevalent in our own backyard. North Kent Community Services is dedicated to helping our neighbors in need, but we can’t do it alone.
“We see that many of our clients are getting jobs, but they are low paying jobs that can’t sustain a family,” says Claire Guisfredi, executive director of NKCS. “Our families come to us for food, clothing and personal care items, the things that many of us take for granted.”
NKCS depends on community donations to supply our clients with these everyday necessities. We are currently in need of:
• Gently used clothing, shoes, and accessories
• Gently used household items and linens
• Child-friendly food items (e.g., cereal, juice, peanut butter)
• Personal care items (e.g., shampoo, soap, toilet paper, feminine hygiene products)
You can make a difference in our local community. As you clean out your closets and garage this summer, please consider donating your gently used items to NKCS. Drop off all food and other items Monday-Friday, 8:00 to 6:00. We are located at 10075 Northland Dr. NE (north of 12 Mile Road.)
Thank you for supporting NKCS as we serve your friends, family and neighbors.
North Kent Community Services is the largest food pantry in northern Kent County, serving families and individuals from 6 Mile to 22 Mile Roads. We provide food, clothing, senior meals on wheels, tax preparation and more to those in need.
