In this uncharted season, Back2Back Cincinnati is resourcing students and their families as they strive toward sustainability. Healthy meals, educational resources, and connection with safe adults are keys to empowering families toward success at home. 

During the summer, Parkside will be working with Back2Back a little differently. We will have one day each month for donations to be dropped off at Parkside. On June 17th and July 15th, we invite you to come between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. and drop off items from the list below. Please remember, when you arrive, pull under the overhang and unload your donations onto the cart provided. A minister will bring the cart into the building. If someone is unloading in front of you, please wait in your car until they are finished. Also to help keep the church building clean we ask that only the Parkside Staff enter the building. We look forward to seeing you!
