CINCINNATI, OH – In partnership with Procter & Gamble, Matthew 25: Ministries is responding to Hurricane Laura. Matthew 25: Ministries deployed their Disaster Response Team with a selection of their Disaster Response Fleet, which includes two Tide Loads of Hope Mobile Units, as well as customized panel and pickup trucks loaded with supplies such as P&G personal care kits, household and cleaning products, Cintas first aid and safety kits and supplies, and additional items such as Pampers diapers, Charmin toilet paper, Tide Pods, generators, fans and tarps.

On Tuesday, September 1, Matthew 25’s Disaster Response Team will be distributing supplies in the Lake Charles area.

Matthew 25’s Disaster Response Team will also begin providing laundry services with the Tide Loads of Hope Mobile Laundry Units on Tuesday, September 1 at the following location and times (There is a limit of 2 loads of laundry per household. All washable items, with the exception of heavy bedding, will be accepted.) Masks and social distancing are required for all beneficiaries at Tide Loads of Hope activation sites.

Location: Walmart Supercenter 3451 Nelson Rd, Lake Charles, LA 70605
Times: 10am – 3pm (or until 200 loads of laundry are collected each day)

As more information has been released about COVID-19 and as guidelines have become more updated and specific regarding safe operations, Matthew 25: Ministries has been able to establish new safety protocols and processes that help keep both our team and beneficiaries at distribution and Tide Loads of Hope activation sites protected while still allowing us to provide supplies and free laundry services to households whose lives have been impacted by major disasters.

Safety precautions for the deployment include dual deployment of Tide Loads of Hope mobile laundromat units to allow for social distancing on-site, increased use of PPE, increased sanitation practices, signage instructions and non-contact registration. In addition, the team will adhere to all local health agency COVID-19 guidelines.
