TOPSS is a pantry and social service agency serving the Talawanda School District and the greater Oxford, Ohio, area.


At TOPSS, we are committed to being more than just a social service agency. We strive to be a lifeline for individuals and families who are struggling to make ends meet. Our goal is to provide support to people in the Talawanda School District who are experiencing major setbacks or challenges. We offer weekly pantry services and emergency assistance, including rent and utility support, to those who are eligible to ensure that no one falls through the cracks. We understand that life can be unpredictable, and having a strong support system can make all the difference. That's why we are here—to extend a helping hand and provide a clear path to stability.
