Families, individuals, and responders in need of personal care items, cleaning products, laundry and shower services in the wake of devastating tornadoes and storms striking in Ohio and Indiana.




P&G Disaster Relief is activating to support recovery efforts in Ohio and Indiana in collaboration with Walmart and Matthew 25: Ministries, an international humanitarian aid and disaster relief organization.




A Tide Loads of Hope Mobile Laundry Unit, powered by Matthew 25: Ministries, will provide free, full-service laundry to affected residents and responders. People can bring clothes (up to two loads per household) to be washed, dried, and folded free of charge. All washable clothing types will be accepted, except for heavy bedding.




A shower trailer will be also available to provide residents with hot showers. The shower trailer has five private bathroom/shower units, one of which is ADA-compliant, and a Pampers diaper changing station. Individual personal care products, including shampoo, conditioner and body wash from P&G brands such as Pantene, Head & Shoulders, Olay and Old Spice, and freshly laundered towels will be available for use on-site. All units are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected following each use.




In partnership with Matthew 25: Ministries, P&G will also distribute free personal care kits with everyday essentials, including cleaning products to meet basic hygiene and home care needs directly into impacted neighborhoods.*

Together, they assist people in need of clean laundry, showers and personal care items in communities recovering from major disasters.
