CINCINNATI - Cintas Corporation has partnered with Cincinnati-based Matthew 25: Ministries to provide essential humanitarian aid to the victims of the recent earthquake in Haiti.
On Friday, Jan. 15, Matthew 25: Ministries picked up the first of over 43,000 garments, nearly half of which are medical scrubs. The total value of the donation exceeds $330,000.
"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," said Scott Farmer, Chief Executive Officer. "The people of Haiti have suffered immeasurable loss and we are pleased to do our part to help them overcome this tragedy," he added.
The garments were transported from Cintas Corporation's Chicago Distribution Center to Matthew 25: Ministries' Processing Center located in Blue Ash, OH. It will then be sorted, repackaged and shipped with other essential humanitarian aid to Haiti.
Cintas Corporation's relief efforts are ongoing and the company is continuing to work with Matthew 25: Ministries on donations of additional Cintas products, including latex gloves, first aid supplies, hand sanitizer and masks. In addition, 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.
Officials say nearly 20 other people rescued from the back of the rig early Sunday were hospitalized in dire condition, many with extreme dehydration and heatstroke.Full Story >
