SERVE THE COMMUNITY

Starting in 2021, Church of the Saviour is officially the first city of Montgomery Clothing Collection bin location for Matthew 25 Ministries. The bin is in our parking lot and is a collection point for new and gently used adult and children’s clothing and accessories. 

Matthew 25: Ministries welcomes adult and children’s clothing of all sizes, summer and winter clothing, coats and winter accessories.  Matthew 25 asks that donated clothing is clean, free of fraying, tears, holes and stains, has functional zippers or other closures, no missing buttons and no odor.  Underwear and socks must be new and in original packaging.

Items that are donated to Matthew 25 are sorted and evaluated for quality, appearance, geographic and cultural appropriateness.  Every person regardless of their circumstances deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.  Matthew 25’s criteria for clothing is simple – if you would not be willing to wear the garment yourself (quality not style) do not give it to someone else. 

We will be collecting items for Wesley Chapel Mission Center this June! The green collection bin is at the Sanctuary Door. The items requested are listed below:

  • Stamps

  • Address Labels- Avery 5160 (1" x 2 5/8") white

  • Copy Paper

  • Staple Removers

  • Hand Sanitizer

  • Disinfecting Wipes

Cincinnati Cares have changed their website in response to the COVID epidemic and have made it possible for nonprofits to post stories of impact from the crisis as well as the loss of revenue and volunteer hours. As many nonprofits are looking to virtual volunteer engagement, we have added a Ways to Help Now section and Items Needed Now section to the site so people who are looking to volunteer or donate items are easily able to do so. This is a great way to give back during this challenging time.  

Here are some examples of remote ways to help that nonprofits posting on the Cincinnati Cares website:

  • Proofreading or copy writing for newsletters, social media posts, and other communications

  • Creating social media content

  • Writing thank-you notes or making thank you calls to donors

  • Writing thinking of you notes to clients

  • Doing online research and writing reports

  • Writing a press release

  • Reviewing a training curriculum
