Year after year, our employee-partners donate money, goods, services and time to organizations and causes who need their support.
Our employee-partners generously offer resources and volunteer their time to help organizations throughout communities where we do business.
The Under the Rainbow Program is an outpatient therapy program for children at Mt. Sinai Hospital in Chicago. They’ve offered services to children and adolescents who have experienced trauma since 1992. What began as 12 Cintas employee-partners volunteering turned into over 50 people painting walls, installing kid-friendly flooring, bringing in new therapy tools and toys and donating more than 1,000 winter apparel items.
According to Dr. Richard Macur Brousil, the program’s Director, “The Cintas-Under the Rainbow partnership has resulted in a charge of new hope and joy for hundreds and hundreds of children and adolescents whose families live in a poverty-stricken, resource-scarce, violent neighborhood.”
Now in it’s eleventh year, Clothe the Kids is a national Cintas initiative to collect donations for children across the globe. Since the program’s inception in 2003, Cintas partners at 350 Cintas facilities across North America have donated more than one million articles of clothing. The donations are packaged by Cintas and distributed worldwide by Cincinnati-based Matthew 25: Ministries’ Center for Humanitarian Relief, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit humanitarian aid organization.
Cintas’ relationship with the American Heart Association (AHA) began in 2005 when we partnered for training within our First Aid and Safety division. Today, we are the largest training center in the U.S. for the AHA, having trained over 200,000 of our customers with AHA curriculums to save lives at their work places. The company also commits to raising $100,000 annually for the AHA through our partners participation in fundraising events and various Heart Walks throughout the country.
