CINCINNATI — Cintas Corp. has partnered with Cincinnati-based Matthew 25: Ministries to provide humanitarian aid to victims of the recent earthquake in Haiti. Cintas has donated more than 43,000 garments, nearly half of which are medical scrubs, for a total value of more than $330,000, the company says.
“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 donated garments have been transported from Cintas’ Chicago distribution center to Matthew 25: Ministries’ processing center located in Blue Ash, Ohio. They will be sorted, repackaged and shipped with other humanitarian aid to Haiti.
Cintas will continue to work with Matthew 25: Ministries on donations of additional Cintas products, including latex gloves, first-aid supplies, hand sanitizer and masks, according to the company. Cintas employees are engaged in additional relief drives at each of the company’s 350 locations, the proceeds of which will be shipped through Matthew 25: Ministries.
Matthew 25: Ministries rescues and reuses 10 million pounds of corporate discontinues, misprints, overruns, off-spec, slightly damaged, returned and past-season products each year and redistributes them to people in need worldwide.
