Items we need now

Cleaning supplies

Message from Cincinnati City Council Member Chris Seelbach: Can you help? Our largest homeless shelter doesn't have enough cleaning supplies. Can you help those most vulnerable by donating cleaning supplies to Shelterhouse? You can drop off supplies (while wearing mask) at 411 Gest Street between 9:00am -7:00pm.
