Associate Engagement Meets Community Giving

Posted by ImageFIRST on May 24, 2017 10:15:58 AM

Here at ImageFIRST, we like to exceed rather than just meet expectations, and do much more than providing medical uniforms in Puerto Rico and the US. For this reason, we’ve found ways to give back to the community with the help of our associates. Because when associate engagement meets community giving, everyone wins.

This month, our team at ImageFIRST Healthcare Laundry Specialists participated in the annual Mother’s Day Make-A-Wish Truck Convoy, an event held every Mother’s Day in Lancaster, PA. This event benefits the Make-A-Wish Foundation in Northern Delaware, Philadelphia and Susquehanna Valley. Over the last 30 years, this chapter has served almost 6,000 local families and children with the help of their efforts.

What is the 2017 Mother’s Day Truck Convoy?

The event is a community-wide celebration and effort that’s used to grant the wishes of children battling life-threatening illnesses. Families, friends and corporations are all invited to join together and help raise funds for children in regions that include Philadelphia, Northern Delaware and Susquehanna Valley.

Our ImageFIRST Lancaster office has participated in the event for several years, and we were a proud “Wish Friends” sponsor of the event this year. With more than 500 trucks, the Make-A-Wish event won the 2016 Guinness World Record for the world’s longest truck convoy.

Just One of Many Events

This Make-A-Wish Truck Convoy event is just one of the many community giving events that we participate in every quarter across the nation. Many of our associates participate in these events because they’ve been inspired to help those in need. Not only do our associates participate in community giving events, but they also participate in associate engagement activities hosted by ImageFIRST! In fact, our Lancaster associates recently merged their family with other ImageFIRST families to coordinate an Easter Egg Hunt for their associates’ children and grandchildren.

Here at ImageFIRST Puerto Rico, we take pride in being one of the leading healthcare laundry providers in the industry. We’re passionate about delivering quality medical linen and services so that our customers can focus on remarkable patient care.
