BLUE ASH, Ohio -- Volunteers with Matthew 25: Ministries have dedicated themselves to living the nonprofit's mission of "helping the poorest of the poor locally, regionally, nationally and internationally," sending supplies and personnel to provide aid in the aftermath of floods, wildfires and hurricanes all over the world.
So many have risen to the call, in fact, that they need more room at home to do it.
"We have over 70,000 volunteers each year that come to Matthew 25," CEO Tim Mettey said. "We need a lot more parking."
And more warehouse space, and larger offices. The organization is embarking on a two-year construction project to make it all happen.
The final product will comprise bigger versions of the existing spaces and a few additions, including a multipurpose building for rental and a chapel to "honor God for blessing us," Mettey said.
