M25M is a humanitarian aid and disaster relief organization headquartered in Cincinnati, OH working with Tina Knowles Lawson’s #IDIDMYPART, P&G, The Christ Hospital, Brandicorp, eXclusive Services, Quest Diagnostics, City of Blue Ash, and Mobile Air and Power Rentals to make the event possible. Matthew 25 Ministries is hosting the free drive-thru COVID-19 testing and distribution of free kits containing personal care, hygiene items and basic PPE.

The testing and distribution will take place at Matthew 25 Ministires: 11060 Kenwood Road Cincinnati, OH 45242 from 9 a.m to 4 p.m. Saturday, July 25, 2020. Supplies and testing will be available while they last Rain Or Shine. 

  • Free COVID-19 tests will be administered on a first come, first served basis while supplies last
  • Free PPE, personal care and hygiene kits will be distributed while supplies last
