Help Us Help More People
Be a Part of our Capital Campaign
When Rev. Wendell Mettey founded Matthew 25: Ministries in 1991, he began carrying supplies to Nicaragua in suitcases. Now, we ship more than 20 million pounds of products each year—that’s over 900 truckloads of aid—helping more than 25 million people.
Matthew 25: Ministries has been abundantly blessed with many generous donors and volunteers. Especially in response to the high number of recent disasters, we’ve received an outpouring of support. With your help, we are now helping more people than ever before, and in order to continue doing so, we need to expand our facility. We want you to be a part of this growth.
HELP US HELP MORE PEOPLE: MATTHEW 25’s GROWTH
FACILITY EXPANSION PROGRESS PHOTOS
WAREHOUSE EXPANSION | Matthew 25: Ministries has completed our 34,000 square-foot, 45 foot tall warehouse expansion, which holds an additional 3,800 pallets of aid. We have added two more dock doors, which will increase our inbound and outbound capabilities and allow us to ship truckloads of aid faster. New racking systems have been installed that will increase our storage capabilities in both our new and existing facility. In addition, our expanded parking lot will better accommodate our growing number of volunteers.
OFFICE RELOCATION | In order to provide more space for volunteers and staff, Matthew 25: Ministries has relocated the majority of our offices to another part of our building and added more office space. We welcome more than 60,000 volunteers per year, each of whom plays an essential role. By re-configuring our space, we can welcome more groups, register volunteers faster, and process products quicker. Also, as we continue to grow and expand our programs, we will need to add more staff to contribute to our efforts to help more people. The office expansion will support our growth in these areas as well. Most of the offices have been made out of shipping containers, which is both cost-effective as well as a unique representation of our work.
CHAPEL & ADDITIONAL IMPROVEMENTS | Matthew 25: Ministries will be building a chapel as a place of reflection, worship, and honoring God together. We will be creating a multi-purpose room that will enhance our capabilities to serve our donors and our community in new and exciting ways. And we will be adding many more cost-saving and efficiency-enhancing improvements to our operations. Each project has been carefully and purposefully planned to increase the impact we have on the poorest of the poor and disaster victims as well as providing additional resources for our community of Greater Cincinnati.
