CINCINNATI – The Unity Financial Life Insurance Co. recently completed a productive aid drive for the victims of the devastating Oklahoma tornadoes. Collections were donated not only by Unity Financial employees, but also the various businesses located in the Fountain Point I & II business complex.
All donations were transported to Matthew 25: Ministries, a top-ranked international humanitarian aid and disaster relief organization headquartered in Cincinnati. The day after Moore, Okla., was hit; Matthew 25: Ministries was on the ground in that city beginning distribution of their first 60,000 pounds of disaster relief. Within the next two days a semi tractor-trailer filled with 44,500 pounds of additional supplies (including the donations from Unity Financial) departed for Moore. The initial 60,000 pounds of aid included personal care kits, blankets, tarps, beverages, paper products, diapers, wipes and more than 90,000 of rice/soy meals.
“Matthew 25: Ministries and our valued local partners, like Unity Financial, worked tirelessly to help the families and people of Moore to recover from this disaster,” said Tim Mettey, M25M's disaster relief coordinator and CEO. “We are here to support them and will continue to be there for them as long as we are needed.” More than 99 percent of Matthew 25: Ministries’ cash and in-kind donations go toward programs. All designated funds are used for the purpose intended.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the tornados that devastated Oklahoma”, said Unity Financial CEO & President Tom Hardy. “We are grateful to be able to lend a hand to those in need.”
