King of Prussia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/29/2016 -- As Back to School season approaches, ImageFIRST, a nationwide provider of healthcare linen rental and laundry services, is doing its part for students heading back to the classroom. ImageFIRST puts community giving at the heart of its purpose, and it can't be denied that education is at the heart of many communities. That's why all throughout the month of July, ImageFIRST has been running a company-wide Backpack Donation Drive with the participation of associates across the country.
ImageFIRST's Backpack Donation Drive will help schools and other organizations that serve their communities to stock up on much-needed supplies in preparation for the coming school year. Ahead of the drive, each participating ImageFIRST location purchased backpacks—empty, but not for long. ImageFIRST associates at each location selected an organization to donate their backpacks to, and asked for lists of materials to fill the backpacks with.
Then, ImageFIRST associates got to work fulfilling the wishes of their organizations of choice. Pens, pencils, folders, markers, notebooks and other supplies poured in from community members that included not just ImageFIRST associates but also customers, vendors and the community at large. On Friday, July 29th, the ImageFIRST location with the highest number of full backpacks will be announced, and at the conclusion of the drive, all supplies donated to ImageFIRST will be presented to the organizations that requested them.
The Backpack Donation Drive is just one of many regular community giving events in which ImageFIRST locations participate nationwide. To learn more about ImageFIRST and why this linen rental and laundry provider values community support so highly, visit their website at www.imagefirst.com.
