Radians, a top-tier manufacturer of a long list of quality Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) that includes eye, ear and hand protection for shooters, has donated nine pallets of safety products to Matthew 25: Ministries (M25M). The organization’s core focus during disasters is to move large amounts of critically needed aid into the affected areas and a large part of the donated equipment will go to aid clearing and rebuilding efforts underway in those regions of the United States devasted by 59 tornados in early December. Areas of Kentucky were struck again on New Years Day.

“The destruction from these devastating tornadoes is truly heartbreaking,” said Tim Mettey, CEO of M25M. “In the aftermath of disasters such as these, PPE supplies are in high demand to keep people safe while beginning the long process of recovery. We appreciate the generous support of corporate donors like Radians, who help us to provide hope and essential supplies to people who have been impacted by the disaster.”

“Massive destruction like this requires major clean-up and new construction on a gigantic scale, so lots of PPE will be required,” said Radians President Bill England. “Radians is thankful we can give back by supplying the safety products that disaster communities need.”

Memphis, TN-based Radians has a history of stepping up when communities are in need. Other donations from the firm include PPE to help cleanup efforts after Hurricane Ida in 2021. It also supplied 14,000 N95 particulate respirators to Tennessee’s Memphis and Shelby counties in March of 2020 at no charge. The gear arrived at a time when protective equipment for frontline medical workers worldwide was running short or even undergoing refurbishment as the pandemic grew.

M25M is a disaster-response organization that assists more than 20 million people annually.
