Detroit, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/12/2017 -- ImageFIRST, a provider of medical uniform linen services in Grand Rapids, MI, announced that the ImageFIRST Denver location was honored as a recipient at Discover Goodwill's Annual Dinner in April, the organization's highest-profile event of the year.
Over 700 "Goodwill Ambassadors" attended the dinner, including donors, local businesses, community partners, honorees and others. Each year, Discover Goodwill selects a few local businesses on which to bestow the 2016 "Extending Goodwill" award. The award recognizes those who have supported Discover Goodwill and embraced its mission to help improve the lives of others, especially those with developmental and economic disadvantages.
Discover Goodwill wants to help people gain both personal and economic independence by eliminating barriers that might inhibit their ability to find job opportunities. With over 20 different types of programs, the organization offers job training and employment placement to those who lack work experience or who have disabilities.
ImageFIRST, one of three recipients of the "Extending Goodwill" award, provides laundry services and linen rentals to medical facilities. Their products and services allow healthcare professionals to focus on providing quality care for their patients, rather than worrying about medical linen and inventory management.
ImageFIRST partnered with Discover Goodwill's Fresh Start Laundry to provide job training and placement to disadvantaged individuals in a service-oriented environment. ImageFIRST occasionally outsources their work to help give individuals like these a fresh start in life.
ImageFIRST considers itself more than just a provider of medical uniform scrubs in Toledo, OH, and beyond; the ImageFIRST Purpose states the company's intention to build a great company by positively impacting the lives of their associates, their community, their customers and their customers' patients.
