In Partnership with Procter & Gamble, Matthew 25 Deploys Disaster Response Fleet Along with Tide Loads of Hope

APRIL 4, 2023  Blue Ash, OH Matthew 25: Ministries, a humanitarian aid and disaster relief organization headquartered in Blue Ash, OH is deploying their Disaster Response Team and Fleet to provide relief services and supplies to areas impacted by Friday’s destructive storms.

In partnership with Procter & Gamble, Matthew 25: Ministries is deploying their disaster response fleet including customized panel trucks loaded with P&G personal care kits and products, bottled water, first aid and safety supplies provided by Cintas and tarps provided by Lamar. Matthew 25 will also deploy both Tide Loads of Hope Mobile Units that can complete up to a combined 300 loads of laundry a day. Matthew 25 is also deploying the Duracell PowerForward truck equipped to carry as many as 20,000 Duracell batteries as well as on-board charging stations for mobile devices, and a Clean-Up Trailer equipped with tools and other supplies to help those cleaning up their homes and properties.

The team and fleet have been prepped and ready to deploy since the first round of weather swept through the area on Friday night. A second round of severe storms that are moving through the same areas on Tuesday is delaying operations. The team that has been providing services and supplies to Mississippi, is on its way to Little Rock, AR and an additional team is deploying from Matthew 25 tomorrow, Wednesday, April 5, headed to Sullivan, IN. Both teams will have Tide Loads of Hope Mobile Units attached to their fleet of vehicles. In addition to deploying their Disaster Response Team, Matthew 25 is shipping truckloads of relief to help meet the immediate and ongoing needs of those impacted and is continuing to ship supplies to areas devastated by the recent storms in Mississippi. Matthew 25 will also continue working with partners in both areas to assess ongoing needs.
