From Matthew 25 (@M25M_org): What’s Needed for Sandy Relief

In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, some of you are no doubt wondering how you can help. I have a list of items needed from Matthew 25 Ministries. Please go to the Matthew 25 Ministries Sandy Relief webpage to find out where you can donate monetarily or take the following items being requested for Sandy relief efforts:

  • Non-Perishable Food: PULL TOP canned vegetables, fruits etc.; ready to eat dry goods such as nuts, peanut butter, dried fruits, granola and trail mixes, jerkies, ready to eat snacks; bottled water; ready- to-eat meals or MREs
  • Personal Care Products: Antibacterial soap, hand sanitizer, toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, body wash, deodorant, lotion etc.
  • Cleaning supplies: Laundry detergents, general cleaner, sponges, bleach (powdered form is preferred), mops, scrub brushes, buckets, rubber gloves etc.
  • Paper products: Toilet paper, paper towels etc.
  • Baby and infant supplies: Diapers, wipes, diaper rash ointment, baby wash, baby shampoo, baby lotion etc.
  • First-Aid items: Bandages, gauze, pads, first aid tape, antiseptic creams, hydrogen peroxide, alcohol, latex gloves, instant cold packs etc.
  • Tarps
  • Again, go to the Matthew 25 Ministries Sandy Relief webpage to find out where you can drop off these items that are being sent to the east coast, or how you can otherwise help them. They accept donations at their warehouse at 11060 Kenwood Road in Blue Ash from 9:00am – 4:00pm Monday through Friday, or 9:00am – 1:00pm on Saturdays, and the other locations will be on their website above. As of right now, the website above notes that volunteers MAY be needed at that location next week starting Tuesday. This is in addition to the Red Cross efforts mentioned earlier.
