Matthew 25: Ministries and Cintas are helping organizations directly involved in prevention, containment and treatment by supplying PPE, first aid, safety and hygeine supplies.

The two have developed a four-part strategy to do so.

Cintas regularly provides first aid and safety supplies to Matthew 25, which has allowed the organization to distribute it to health care workers where it is needed. This is part one.

Matthew 25 is also making face shields for healthcare workers and Cintas is donating the labor of its employee-partners, part two, to assist in making the shields.

Cintas is also donating fabric to a factory in Haiti, part three, which will enable the factory to make tens of thousands of protective masks for distribution to Haitian healthcare and nonprofit organizations.
