Matthew 25: Ministries is responding to a series of storms and tornadoes that moved across parts of Ohio early Wednesday, February 28. The storms generated heavy rain, high winds, and hail, leaving behind severe damage across portions of central Ohio. So far, the National Weather Service has confirmed at least 5 tornadoes touched down during Wednesday’s storms.

Matthew 25: Ministries deployed our Disaster Response Team to provide essential supplies to those impacted, including personal care products, cleaning supplies, baby items, paper products, first aid and safety kits, water, tools, tarps and more. The team will distribute supplies across Montgomery County, Clark County, Madison County, Franklin County, and other affected areas. While there, Matthew 25 will conduct damage assessments and will continue communicating with partners in the area to evaluate how we can best serve the ongoing needs of the disaster region.
