Cincinnati, Ohio distributor Cintas Corp. (UPIC: CINTP001) partnered with Cincinnati-based Matthew 25: Ministries to provide more than 43,000 garments, nearly half of which are medical scrubs, to the victims of the recent earthquake in Haiti. The total value of the donation exceeds $330,000.
The garment donation is part of an ongoing relief effort by the company through Matthew 25: Ministries. Other Cintas products donated to the ministry include latex gloves, first-aid supplies, hand sanitizers and masks.
“Cintas is committed to being a good corporate citizen and is proud of the partnership we have had with Matthew 25: Ministries for more than a decade,” says Scott Farmer, chief executive officer of Cintas. “The people of Haiti have suffered immeasurable loss and we are pleased to do our part to help them overcome this tragedy.”
The garments were transported from Cintas’s Chicago distribution center to Matthew 25: Ministries’s processing center in Blue Ash, Ohio. They will be sorted, repackaged and shipped with other essential humanitarian aid to Haiti.
Cintas employee-partners are engaged in additional relief drives at each of the company’s 350 locations throughout North America, all of which will be shipped directly to Matthew 25: Ministries.
