Great Non-Profit organization that help many people. The staff that work there are friendly and helpful. There's a variety of different task that a volunteer can choice from. Just a great place for people who are looking to volunteer and help people in need.
Great charity - helping "the least of these". I have been involved with the Ministry for nearly 25 years.
I've been involved with Matthew 25 since the early 90's. I have organized volunteer workdays at Matthew 25 for over 20 years. i remember we were in a little building in Blue Ash then moved to what we thought was a much larger building in the Park 50 complex in Milford. This was just the first of many places we were in until we finally bought and refurbished the current location on Kenwood Rd. When we built our first facility on Loveland Rd in the late 90's, we no idea how we would ever fill it -- by the time we had it built we had out grown it! God has truly blessed this Ministry. You know when you go there that what ever you do, you are doing it for "the least of these" and that you are truly making a difference in the world.
I have been privileged to work with this loving organization for many years. Each time I go I am amazed at the positive, loving, caring difference this "mission" has on our world. It is especially gratifying to be able to,actually "work" here and feel part of the whole process rather than just writing a check.
I have worked here for years and it is the "best thing ever". I bring in donations from our parishioners (pill bottles, medical supplies, clothing, household items, shoes, leftover paint, etc). It has been a neat experience to find us using Rainbow Paint from M25M while on Mission trips in Jamaica!!! I usually volunteer once a week, meeting my sister who lives 30 miles away so we can "catch up" while we work. Once you come here, you are "hooked" on what M25M does for the world! I thank God for having given me the opportunity.
I have been working with Matthew:25 for over 15 years. The people who run this organization, the volunteers who give up their time and the friendships that have been made over these years has made a big impact on my life. I am always amazed at the scope of what Matthew:25 does. If you need help----they are there!
I have been volunteering at Matthew 25 Ministries several hours per week for almost five years. When I leave at the end on my volunteer time, I have a good feeling that I have helped a very caring and efficient organization. I have also enjoyed meeting other volunteers and the friendly staff at Matthew 25 Ministries.
M25M has proven to be a life-improving experience, not only for the millions of people who receive help/aid, but also for me, personally. In the act of volunteering once a week, I can witness the hours of labor that lovingly go into making this aid possible. In so many ways I, myself, benefit in sharing with the other volunteers, the mission of M25:M has laid out. I feel I have made another family here, especially with Lou, a very special family. I would encourage everyone to make time for volunteering at some point in their life!! It is SO worth it!
I first started volunteering because my golf buddy, Bob, and I were trying to find some new places to spend our time. Since one of our other golf buddies had an injury, our group could no longer golf. We tried local places like soup kitchens and helped restore some local buildings, but when we came across Matthew 25 Ministries we really liked what they do. They accepted all of us, no matter what religious background we had and they never pushed any believes on us. We really liked that. The best thing about them is that 99.9% of all donations go out and help people in need. I remember helping sort somewhere around 10,000 tuxedos and thought, what are they going to do with these? Shelly reminded me that in some countries it's really cold so they could really use the jackets to keep warm. I had never thought of it like that before. I also really enjoyed their Tickets The Radio Play performance, it was really funny!!
God has blessed me with a good life and lots of advantages. In addition to enjoying what I do at Matthew 25, I feel a responsibility to pay it forward to those who don't have as much as I do.
Sixteen years ago, my wife and I, both newly retired, were looking for location to volunteer. We tried M25M and stayed. The opportunity to serve to, to stay in Cincinnati and the people we met early on (Wendell and Anita), all contributed to our decision of volunteering. Of primary importance was the Matthew 25 parable, “what you did for these, the least of my brothers, you did for me.” My wife has since passed away; I have never regretted the decision we made sixteen years ago.
