Cintas Donates 100,000 Face Masks To Matthew 25 Ministries
Cintas Corporation (PPAI 303547, D12) has donated 100,000 face masks to Matthew 25 Ministries, an international humanitarian aid and disaster relief organization headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio. The face masks will be distributed to organizations on the front lines of COVID-19 prevention, containment and treatment.
“We recognize that organizations’ need for PPE remains ongoing and we’re honored to leverage our longstanding relationship with Matthew 25 to provide much-needed supplies,” says Mark Carter, president and COO of Cintas’ First Aid and Safety division. “We are proud to continue to do our part to support front-line workers and the community amid the COVID-19 pandemic because nothing is more important to a business than the health and safety of its employees and customers.’”
In April, Cintas, also headquartered in Cincinnati, partnered with Matthew 25 Ministries to provide multi-pronged support to front-line workers, including personal protective equipment (PPE), first aid, safety and hygiene supplies. Cintas will continue to provide Matthew 25 with essential first aid and safety supplies for distribution to partners locally and across the U.S. as Matthew 25 continues and expands its COVID-19 response.
“We’re grateful for Cintas’ continued support to provide the most effective disaster response possible,” says Tim Mettey, CEO of Matthew 25 Ministries. “These critical supplies will help us meet health care and other health service providers’ immediate need for protective products.”
Cintas and Matthew 25 began partnering to care for the poor and disaster victims in 1998. To date, Cintas has donated more than 17 million pounds of products including clothing, sewing machines, fabric, linens, soap, medicine, first-aid supplies, household items, personal care items, food, school and medical supplies and building materials to Matthew 25 Ministries.
