Announcing the Third Annual ImageFIRST Nation-Wide Backpack Donation Drive!

Posted by ImageFIRST on Jul 31, 2017 8:00:00 AM

If you grew up in a family that struggled financially, then you know how it feels to go back to school as a child with insufficient school supplies. ImageFIRST believes that no child should have to go without the supplies they need to be successful, because their future depends on an education.

For the past three years, ImageFIRST has been hosting a backpack donation drive that spans the entire country. We hope to assist in providing children with all the essential back-to-school items they will need to start the year equipped to succeed.

How the Drive Works:

All participating ImageFIRST locations, including ImageFIRST Miami, selected a charity organization to donate their backpacks to. Once selected, the charity supplied a list of materials with which to fill the backpacks, according to their unique needs.

At each respective ImageFIRST location, the HR or office manager circulated the list of supplies provided by the chosen nonprofit organization, as well as a list of designated drop-off points. The ImageFIRST office took on the responsibility of purchasing the backpacks, and our associates were only tasked to help gather the actual supplies.

From July 3rd until Monday the 31st, our drive was in full swing. Last year, ImageFIRST Healthcare Laundry Specialists donated more than 1,000 backpacks to local organizations and schools. This year, we aim to donate even more!

This drive contributes to our regular efforts to give back to the community. ImageFIRST Miami, among our other branches, is committed to brightening the futures of children in local schools and other organizations. Through this backpack drive, students will get the opportunity to prepare for the school year with brand new school supplies and an ambition to learn new things. This drive gives children the opportunity to have all the resources they need to be fully engaged in their education.

At ImageFIRST, we don’t just provide hospital scrubs in Fort Lauderdale, FL and medical linen services in Miami; we make a difference in the lives of individuals and our local communities. Call us today at 1-800-932-7472 to speak with one of our representatives and find out how you can help!
