Local Donations & Collections

Donate goods. Earn service hours. Help those in need.

Earn off-site service hours by collecting and donating non-perishable food items and clothing!


  • Clean out your closet and/or organize a collection with your school or church.
  • Gather your clean, gently used clothing, shoes, linens, as well as new underwear and socks in their original packaging.
  • For the first 13-gallon bag you fill, you will receive 1 service hour; then 30 minutes for each bag after that.


  • Clean out your pantry and/or organize a collection with your school, church, or workplace.
  • Gather unopened non-perishable food items, such as pull-top canned fruits and vegetables, peanut butter, snack bars, beans, rice, bottled water, and more.
  • For the first filled grocery bag (paper or plastic), you will receive 1 service hour; then 30 minutes for each bag after that. 


Drop your donations off Monday – Friday from 9 AM – 4 PM and Saturday from 9 AM – 3 PM at our Blue Ash Facility (11083 Kenwood Road, Blue Ash, Ohio 45242).

All donations must be verified by a staff member at the time of drop off in order to qualify for service hours. Donations made at a remote donation bin location do not qualify for service hours. Be sure to get your service hour form signed by a Matthew 25: Ministries staff member while dropping off your donation. Please note that food and clothing donations do not qualify towards court-ordered community service hours.
