Matthew 25: Ministries responded to devastating storms and tornadoes that moved across parts of Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky on Thursday, March 14, destroying large portions of several towns and knocking out power for thousands. The storms were part of an extensive weather system that placed more than 45 million people from Texas to Pennsylvania under threat of severe storms. Logan, Auglaize and Mercer Counties in OH and Randolph and Delaware Counties in IN are among those that have sustained the most severe damage.

In partnership with Procter & Gamble, Matthew 25: Ministries deployed our Disaster Response Teams to provide supplies such as P&G personal care kits, baby supplies, paper products, Zevo insect repellant and additional supplies including garbage bags, cleaning supplies, and first aid and safety supplies provided by Cintas to areas impacted by the tornadoes. Additionally, Matthew 25 deployed the Tide Loads of Hope Mobile Laundry Unit, a shower trailer in collaboration with Procter & Gamble, Walmart, and Tide, as well as the Duracell PowerForward truck, equipped to carry as many as 20,000 Duracell batteries as well as on-board charging stations for mobile devices. Matthew 25 also deployed trucks equipped with tools and other supplies to help those cleaning up their homes and properties. Matthew 25 will continue working with partners serving the impacted areas to evaluate ongoing needs.
