Bed Deliveries to Neighbors In Need
1125 Bank Street, Cincinnati OH, 45214
Adults and Kids

St Vincent de Paul gives out over 1000 bed vouchers each year, but over 50% them go unused simply because people can’t manage to get the bed(s) to their apartment or house.  Every few months we deliver about 8 – 10 beds to our neighbors in need. We meet a lot of very happy people who are excited to get a new bed. Many of the folks we meet have been sleeping on the floor or an air mattress.  Many kids get to receive their very first bed.

We meet at the St. Vincent de Paul warehouse at 1125 Bank Street at 9 AM.  We then load up our trucks and we deliver the beds.  We usually wrap up between 11:45 AM and 12:15 PM.  It is a very rewarding morning!
