New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/07/2016 -- ImageFIRST® is an industry-leading healthcare laundry and linen rental service that provides products like medical scrub uniforms in New York City. The company is dedicated to improving the satisfaction of patients through remarkable patient apparel, staff uniforms and bedding as well as cost-effective inventory management. This July, ImageFIRST completed a companywide backpack drive to assist in supplying children with the essentials they need to return to school fully-equipped and ready to succeed.
ImageFIRST New York was one of the ImageFIRST locations that participated in the drive, along with New Jersey, Lancaster, Los Angeles, Miami, North Carolina, Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, San Antonio, Ft. Myers and the company's King of Prussia corporate headquarters. Last year, ImageFIRST donated 1,000 backpacks filled with school supplies to local schools and organizations. This year, their goal was to exceed the previous year's donation.
After a month-long challenge, ImageFIRST successfully met their goal by collecting 1,060 backpacks. Each of the locations put in their strongest effort; as a highlight, ImageFIRST New York (together with ImageFIRST New Jersey) collected 100 backpacks, which were in turn donated to the Board of Education in Paterson, NJ. Children in the Paterson School District will be able to go to school with brand-new backpacks and plenty of school supplies this year thanks to ImageFIRST.
ImageFIRST keeps community giving at the heart of its purpose. With the outcome of the backpack drive, it's clear that the company and its associates continue to live up to their roles as community members.
