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 long-standing relationship with Matthew 25 to provide much-needed supplies,” said 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 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 their COVID-19 response.
