NEW RICHMOND, Ohio -- As area rivers slowly recede back into their banks, Matthew 25: Ministries has started distributing humanitarian aid and relief to those impacted by the flooding, particularly in New Richmond.
From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Matthew 25’s Disaster Response Team will be stationed at the First Baptist Church (213 Western Ave.) to distribute supplies and provide laundry services.
Matthew 25 will hand out personal care kits, household and cleaning products, first aid and safety kits and supplies, and additional items such as diapers, toilet paper, Tide Pods and tarps. The Tide Loads of Hope mobile laundry unit will provide residents with laundry services.
Matthew 25: Ministries accepts cash, credit card and internet donations for ongoing disaster aid and humanitarian relief programs. More than 99 percent of Matthew 25: Ministries’ cash and in-kind donations go toward programs. Matthew 25 also welcomes volunteers six days a week at their Blue Ash facility.
