Matthew 25 taking donations for West Virginia emergency
BLUE ASH, Ohio (WKRC) -- Matthew 25 Industries is collecting water to help the people in and around Charleston, West Virginia.
A chemical spill early Thursday morning means as many as 300,000 people in nine counties can't use tap water to drink, bathe, cook or even wash clothes. A foaming agent used in the coal preparation process leaked at Freedom Industries into the Elk River. President Obama declared a state of emergency Friday.
The chemical can be hazardous and boiling the water won't help. There are no reports of illness, but thousands are in need of water.
A semi driver from West Virginia was told to drop everything and report to Matthew 25 to pick up bottled water to take to the region. They're loading up bottled and flavored water today.
