Being useful – for the next disaster

Matthew 25 Ministries in Blue Ash provides care packs for people affected by disasters. Companies donate overstocked/produced or older items and the organizations job is to open it, secure/re-seal items that came in multi-packs and count them for shipment off to where they are needed when disaster strikes.

Our group had lots of under-18-ers yesterday, so we got a sit-down job. The kids were busy opening plastic, taping small lotion containers and counting them.  They also placed cardboard in recycling cartons and ferried items where needed.  They were busy, useful and happy.  We older folk were busy, chatty and happy, too.
