Matthew 25: Ministries responded to massive flooding resulting from Tropical Depression Imelda. The tropical storm made landfall on Tuesday, September 17, and lingered over the Gulf area, causing incredible flooding in much of the region. Some areas recorded more than 40 inches of rain, approaching the records set during Hurricane Harvey in 2017.
Matthew 25’s Disaster Response Team deployed to Texas to provide laundry services and distribute relief products. In total the team completed more than 300 loads of laundry and distributed nearly 800 first aid and safety kits, 400 personal care kits, 2,500 rolls of paper products, and additional supplies including cleaning products, diapers, detergent pods, and bug spray.
