Link: Snacks for Lakota

"Take what you need, give what you can." Our schools all have resource pantries to help when a student needs a snack. Many of our students eat breakfast and lunch at school but are unable to bring a snack. We need snacks such as chips, Cheez-Its, cookies, fruit snack, apple sauce pouches, granola bars etc. We are requesting no nut products or peanut butter due to allergies. Please no perishable items.

Snack Drop-Off Locations:

  • West Chester FD Station 72 - 7715 John Cox Rd, West Chester
  • West Chester FD Station 74 - 8551 Beckett Rd, West Chester
  • Liberty Township FD 112 - 7655 Princeton Rd, Liberty Twp.

MATTHEW 25 MINISTRIES Matthew 25: Ministries is responding to the tornado that hit Goshen Township on Wednesday afternoon, July 6th. The Greater Cincinnati region was swept by heavy rainfall and strong winds throughout the afternoon and the Goshen area was among the most severely hit. The storm left thousands of residents without power and caused extensive damage to homes and buildings with Goshen's downtown area experiencing the most damage. The city's fire department took a direct hit from the tornado resulting in the roof being torn off. Product donations are being accepted at our facility located at 11083 Kenwood Road, Cincinnati, OH 45242:

  • Personal care products: antibacterial soap, hand sanitizer, toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, body wash, deodorant, lotion, etc.
  • Paper products: toilet paper, paper towels, etc.
