CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Matthew 25: Ministries loaded their trucks with donations Saturday morning to help flooding victims in parts of Kentucky.

Officials with the nonprofit say that around 80 homes and 30 businesses were destroyed in Nicholas County near Lexington after four inches of rain caused flooding throughout the county capital of Carlisle and at least one death.

As part of a partnership with Procter and Gamble and the Cintas Center, Matthew 25: Ministries loaded their trucks filled with P&G personal care items, Cintas first aid and safety kits, household cleaning supplies, bottled water, and more.

The team is still requesting donations for their deployment and future distributions:

  • Monetary donations: The donations can be sent online or by check to Matthew 25: Ministries.
  • Cases of bottled water (12-and 24-count)
  • 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.
