On May 21, 2014 Certol® International donated twelve pallets of product to the Matthew 25 Ministries charity organization. As a responsible manufacturer, we feel like it is our obligation to find creative ways to discard our discontinued and slightly damaged items. Certol’s recent donation was for remaining stock of our ProTouch™ vinyl gloves, and ProTray™ disposable instrument trays that were slightly damaged during the manufacturing process. These items will be shipped to Central and South America by Matthew 25 Ministries to help provide the best healthcare to people in need and also following natural disasters in those regions.
Matthew 25 Ministries has made it their goal to provide shelter to the homeless, clean water to the thirsty, medical care to the ill and humanitarian supplies to those in need. After a trip by Pastor Wendell Mettey to Nicaragua in 1990 he made a promise to find a way to help the people of Nicaragua and others in similar situations moving forward. Matthew 25 Ministries was formed shortly after this promise in 1991, starting from a small suitcase ministry, it is now an international relief organization distributing 10 million pounds of products each year.
Certol is proud to be associated with this type of local organization that reaches so many peoples’ lives. Certol will continue to support and work with Matthew 25 Ministries in any way that we can. For more information on Certol products and donations please visit: www.Certol.com.
