Local Donations & Collections

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


We know students may be looking for unique ways to earn service hours this year, due to various COVID-19 restrictions. You can earn service hours by doing a collection for Matthew 25: Ministries.

  • 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
  • Drop your donations off at our Blue Ash Facility (11060 Kenwood Road, Cincinnati, Ohio 45242) Monday – Friday, 9 AM – 4PM.
  • For the first 13-gallon bag you fill, you will receive 1 service hour; then 30 minutes for each bag after that. Be sure to get your service hour form signed by a Matthew 25: Ministries staff member while dropping off your donation.
  • All donations must be verified by a staff member at the time of drop off in order to qualify for service hours.

As we’ve continued to carefully monitor the recommendations of health officials, and in an effort to best protect public health, Matthew 25: Ministries has decided to suspend volunteer hours at our facility until further notice. Please visit our volunteer page for more information.


Residences only

Did you know that Matthew 25: Ministries picks up clothing donations from local residences? Donations may include clean, gently used clothing, shoes, and linens, as well as new underwear and socks in their original packaging. A minimum of five large (13-gallon) bags is required (service hours are not awarded for pick ups). For more information, or to schedule a pick up, contact Matthew 25: Ministries at info@m25m.org.

In an effort to best protect the health and safety of our staff and supporters during the COVID-19 pandemic, Matthew 25: Ministries has implemented contactless pick up procedures.
