At ImageFIRST, we not only provide medical linen and laundry across the United States and Puerto Rico, but we also take part in quarterly community giving events that make a positive impact on the lives of our communities, our associates, our customers and their patients. In a recent example, our ImageFIRST Corporate Office volunteered with Philabundance. On May 25, 2017, eight ImageFIRST associates drove into downtown Philadelphia, PA, to join Philabundance in sorting over 13,000 pounds of frozen meat to donate to charity.
They spent the afternoon going through the various donations already in the Philabundance freezer, inspecting and organizing the meat to be given to community members in need.
As one ImageFIRST associate stated: “In true ImageFIRST style, we out-volunteered the other companies there.”
Whether they are performing medical linen services in Philadelphia, PA, or doing volunteer work with organizations like Philabundance, the ImageFIRST Corporate Office team shows the true spirit of our company Values and Purpose. Through their dedication, the team sorted out more pounds of food than others with the goal of helping more people in mind.
As a response to economic depression that devastated many family incomes, Philabundance was established in 1984 to prevent widespread famine for those who struggle financially. It is their belief that no one should be without food, and their mission to end hunger forever. With the help of generous volunteers and donations, Philabundance has been able to drive hunger from local communities and restore comfort and hope in residents in need.
In Philadelphia alone, close to three-quarters of a million citizens face hunger every day. The working families hit by recession, single parents struggling to care for young children, women who have been abused, seniors and veterans alike all depend on additional support just to survive. Thanks to the efforts of Philabundance, many of these people won't have to face going to bed with an empty belly another night.
ImageFIRST does more than deliver scrub uniforms in Harrisburg, PA; we take strides towards improving our communities one giving event at a time.
