When people hear the word “donate”, they automatically assume that they need to give money. While Matthew 25 AIDS Services appreciates any monetary donations, they also want people to know that involvement from the community is so much more valuable. Please see the many ways in which you can help Matthew 25 AIDS Services.
There is also always a need for food and personal care items for Zack’s Kitchen. Here are some of the things Matthew 25 AIDS Services can always use….
- Canned goods (vegetables, fruits, etc.)
- Boxed Food (Hamburger Helper, etc.)
- Personal Care Items (Shampoo, Soap, Toilet Paper, etc.)
- Cleaning Items (Kitchen Soap, Bathroom Products, etc.)
- Frozen Meats
- Meat, paper products, and personal care items are especially difficult for many of our clients to purchase.
Office items are also often in short supply at Matthew 25 AIDS Services. Items that we always need are of the following:
- Paper Products
- Gasoline Vouchers
Matthew 25 AIDS Services is a non-profit organization and relies on government funding and the generosity of the community at large to continue to provide the services we do. We humbly accept any donation of any value. Every dollar helps to further knowledge of prevention as well as treatment for those who have been effected by HIV/AIDS.
All donations are tax deductible.

Sponsor a Christmas meal to a person living with HIV/AIDS
Donate to Matthew 25’s Yuletide Delivery program. We deliver an average of 150 meals to people
in the Indiana, Illinois, and Kentucky areas. Many of these households are not just facing issues living
with HIV/AIDS but also are living in poverty. A donation of $40 is all it will cost to ensure that one
family will receive a complete meal. All meals will be assembled by Matthew 25 volunteers and
delivered the week of Christmas. Contact John at 270-826-0200 if you would like to assemble boxes. Help make someone’s holiday special with you donation of time and/or money.
It is amazing how spare change can make a huge difference at Matthew 25. Before Judy Cavins even began working at the clinic, she kept a jar on her desk and donated the change collected to the AIDS Awareness Walk. This project has grown over the years; the first year she gave eleven dollars to Matthew 25…in 2010 enough was collected for Judy’s Jar to be a Platinum Sponsor for the annual walk.
In honor of Judy’s designation as Employee of the Year in 2006, Matthew 25 began helping Judy in her endeavor to gather even more change for the organization. Judy’s favorite shape is a star, so star banks were available for anyone interested in giving their change to the clinic. We now offer ribbon banks. Judy hopes everyone will empty their pockets into the banks or collect change from family members or friends. You can also bring coins by the clinic and they will be put in Judy’s Jar. Judy’s Jar also accepts paper money and checks.
In the twelve years that Judy worked at Matthew 25, she saw more clients being treated on less money. She realized the need to be creative in finding new ways to finance programs at Matthew 25.
You can help by dropping your spare change off at Matthew 25 or calling for a special bank to place at home, work, or place of worship.
Your CHANGE can make a CHANGE in someone else’s life.
