Volunteers Needed for the Caring Place
The warehouse was short on a few items to complete our 250 Thanksgiving meal boxes. This is what we need to make the holiday bags complete:
  • 250 boxes of cake mix
  • 120 packs/boxes of mashed potatoes
  • 30 packs/jars of gravy
Someone will be at The Caring Place this evening from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00p.m. for anyone who can donate any of these items. Even if you can donate one item, we appreciate your help. You don't have to get out of your car. Drive around the back of the Kennedy Heights Presbyterian Church, pull up to the door next to the red fence and honk your horn. Thanks in advance for helping neighbors in need have a complete and special holiday meal.

Saturday 11/21 at 8:00a.m. volunteers are needed to prepare and distribute the Thanksgiving bags. Send a message via their Facebook page if you can help!

If you are in need of a Thanksgiving bag, arrive between 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. It will be on a first come, first served basis. The day will operate drive-thru style for safety. Please wear a mask.
***The Caring Place will be closed the week of November 23-27.
We will reopen on December 1.***
Be part of a new holiday celebration
Founder's Forest is a new holiday initiative in Cincinnati in which 3CDC and AGAR will be creating a forest of 52 trees, one for each neighborhood in Cincinnati. 

Kennedy Heights, with the help of the Kennedy Heights Arts Center, will be decorating our tree on November 28. Volunteers will be assembling paper chains, and each chain will be inscribed with residents' thoughts.

Be a part of the Winter Wonderful by emailing any one of the following by November 27:
  • What you love about Kennedy Heights
  • Your wish for Kennedy Heights in the coming year
  • What you are thankful for in 2020

This year has been a challenge in many ways. Financial loss has been felt all over our city, and the Community Council is no exception. Each year, our dedicated champion Bob Kemp travels door to door to request donations for the Community Council. This year, a door-to-door campaign has not been possible, and the loss is apparent. To date, we have brought in $6,000 less than we had hoped to raise in the 2020 fiscal year.

We need you. We know it’s not the same as knocking on your door, laughing and talking as neighbors, but we hope you will help us meet our end of the year goal.

Beginning December 1, known as Giving Tuesday, and running through the end of the year, we are hoping to raise $3,000—just half of the $6,000 shortage. With more than 5,000 households in Kennedy Heights, if every home gives just $1 we will sail past our goal!

Send checks to Kennedy Heights Community Council, P.O. Box 36318, Cincinnati, OH 45236.

Online payments, including recurring payments, can be made at using PayPal.
The Neighborhood Plan is moving forward, and the website is LIVE! Visit this website to learn more about the goals, the process, and most importantly, complete a brief survey that will inform our priorities.

We need every resident and business to participate in order to know that our plan will truly serve the best interest of the community as a whole.
