Matthew 25: Ministries is Working to Help Protect Our Communities Against
Seasonal Illnesses through Product Shipments and On-Site Community Giveaways

JANUARY 24, 2023  Blue Ash, OH RSV, seasonal illnesses like the flu, and variants of COVID-19 have continued to challenge communities. With the prevalence of these illnesses on the rise, Matthew 25: Ministries, a humanitarian aid and disaster relief organization headquartered in Blue Ash, OH has launched a national Health and Wellness outreach campaign, assisting partner organizations to combat these illnesses by providing them with the all-encompassing health and wellness supplies they need to protect their communities.

Matthew 25 is kicking off their Health and Wellness outreach by hosting a giveaway for the Greater Cincinnati community on Tuesday, January 31st from 10 AM – 3 PM at their Blue Ash facility.

Free disinfectant wipes, disinfectant spray, hand sanitizer, masks, and more will be distributed between the hours of 10 AM – 3 PM on Tuesday, January 31st at the drive-through distribution event. Supplies will be placed directly into the trunk of the vehicle in order to maintain social distancing.

Supplies will be available, rain or shine, for individuals and families at the following location:

  • Matthew 25: Ministries, 11060 Kenwood Road, Blue Ash, OH 45242
  • Tuesday, January 31st, 10 AM – 3 PM
  • On-site directional signage will provide pick-up instructions for recipients

Bulk Product Pick-Up (Pre-Scheduled only)

  • Organizations and businesses in need of large quantities of these types of supplies may email to schedule a time for bulk product pick-up
  • Pick-up details will be provided at time of scheduling

With the help of generous corporate product donors including Procter & Gamble, Cintas, Duracell, Tide, and more, Matthew 25 is also shipping truckloads of supplies to partners nationwide for health and hygiene distribution preparation. Truckloads will contain a variety of products including hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes, disinfecting spray and cloth masks along with other basic items like gloves, batteries, paper towels, soaps, basic hygiene supplies, and more for distribution during giveaway events or as part of normal, on-going outreach.  Hand sanitizer is powerful and easy to use, making it an effective way to slow the spread of germs and illness.  Disinfectant sprays and wipes kill germs on surfaces like desks, counter tops, keyboards, computer screens, mobile phones and more.  Combined with other forms of prevention like frequent hand washing or masks, hand sanitizer and disinfectant products help protect people and communities.

Since the onset of COVID-19, Matthew 25: Ministries has continued to provide health and hygiene supplies to partners across the U.S. to supplement the great and essential work they are doing in their communities.  In 2022, Matthew 25: Ministries provided over 3 million pounds of these types of supplies to partners including hospitals, first responders, assisted living facilities, schools, businesses, shelters, and more, bringing Matthew 25’s overall pandemic related distribution numbers to more than 10 million pounds.
