Cintas donates 100,000 face masks to Matthew 25 Ministries
Cintas Corporation has donated 100,000 facemasks to Matthew 25 Ministries, an international humanitarian aid and disaster relief organisation headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, the US. The facemasks will be distributed to organisations on the front lines of Covid-19 prevention, containment and treatment.
"We recognise that organisations' need for PPE remains ongoing, and we're honoured to leverage our long-standing relationship with Matthew 25 to provide much-needed supplies," says Mark Carter, president and COO of Cintas’s First Aid & Safety division.
"We are proud to continue to do our part to support frontline workers and the community amid the Covid-19 pandemic because nothing is more important to a business than the health & safety of its employees and customers."
In April, Cintas partnered with Matthew 25 Ministries to provide multi-pronged support to frontline 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 US as Matthew 25 continues and expands its Covid-19 response.
Matthew 25 Ministries CEO Tim Mettey says: "We're grateful for Cintas's continued support to provide the most effective disaster response possible. These critical supplies will help us meet healthcare and other health service providers' immediate needs for protective products."
Cintas and Matthew 25 began partnering to care for the poorest of the poor and disaster victims in 1998. To date, Cintas has donated over 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.
Throughout the pandemic, Cintas has remained committed to providing necessary products and services to businesses to ensure they are ready to operate.
