Local relief agency returns after helping storm-ravaged Southeast

A group from Matthew 25: Ministries in Blue Ash has returned home after taking supplies to tornado-ravaged Alabama.

Matthew 25 is a humanitarian aid and disaster relief organization that assists in ongoing disaster aid in the U.S. and around the world.

Matthew 25's initial shipment to the southeast included almost 300,000 pounds of products, including non-perishable food, water, personal care kits and diapers. In addition, 180,000 meals from the ministry's food processing center were included in the shipment.

Additional truckloads of supplies will follow based on an assessment of needs.

Matthew 25 is always seeking donations and volunteers. For more information, visit www.m25m.org.
