Individuals and Families Can Pick Up Supplies at Matthew 25’s Blue Ash Location

WEDNESDAY JUNE 17, 2020  Cincinnati, OH On June 24 and 25, Matthew 25: Ministries will once again be providing COVID-19 supplies to members of the Greater Cincinnati community to help promote personal and public safety during the Coronavirus outbreak.

From 11 AM – 1 PM on Wednesday and Thursday, June 24 and 25, vehicles will be able to drive through the Matthew 25 parking lot and pick up a kit of supplies such as hand sanitizer, gloves, masks and cough drops along with food from Arby’s, courtesy of Brandicorp (one lunch will be provided for each person in the vehicle—up to 1,000 people served each day).  Because supplies are limited, there will be a maximum of two kits per vehicle.

In observance of social distancing guidelines, vehicles will pull up to the distribution station, pop their trunk and receive their donation of supplies and food.  In an effort to best protect public health, recipients must remain in their vehicles while picking up supplies.  Bags will be placed directly into the trunk of the vehicle in order to maintain social distancing.

Matthew 25 continues working with first responders, hospitals, healthcare providers, public service agencies and other organizations and businesses to ensure that they have access to the supplies they need to protect their employees and safely meet the needs of the community.  To date, Matthew 25: Ministries has distributed approximately 2,000,000 pounds of supplies including masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes, paper products, soap, batteries, diapers, plus additional personal protective equipment, personal care products, and cleaning items to more than 850 partners.
