Semis of Aid Will Make Their Way to Ventura for Wildfire Relief

DECEMBER 8, 2017  Cincinnati, OH – Matthew 25: Ministries, an international humanitarian aid and disaster relief organization in Cincinnati, OH is sending semis of aid to partners in Ventura County in response to the devastating wildfires ravaging the area. The trucks will contain such things as personal care items, first aid supplies, paper products, beverages, and diapers.

The fires continue to grow in Ventura County with additional ones developing in the surrounding areas. Current weather conditions could propel the growth of these fires to even greater intensity. Matthew 25 has been in communication with partners on the ground and will continue to work with them to identify most urgent needs. The situation is still very dangerous and conditions are changing rapidly.  Matthew 25 will send truckloads of aid into the area once safe access becomes available and our partners are prepared to accept supplies.

“Matthew 25 is always prepared to respond to disasters whenever they occur.  Our mission year round is to help people in need,” says Matthew 25 CEO Tim Mettey.  “During this holiday season, we are grateful to be able to help the people whose lives have been impacted by these wildfires.”
