Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/27/2015 -- At ImageFIRST - South LA, and other branches of the healthcare laundry services company across the U.S., employees are encouraged to volunteer in the communities in which they live, and are provided with plenty of opportunities to do so through ImageFIRST's relationships with well-known charitable organizations. On June 27, 2015, members of the ImageFIRST South LA team took part in an event called "Not On My Watch" to raise awareness of suicide by military members, which was timed to correspond with National Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Week.
The event, part of a week long vigil, was held at the Old Colorado Boulevard Bridge in Pasadena, California, due to the bridge's infamy as a location of more than 150 suicides by both veterans and civilians. During the event, veterans took turns standing watch over the bridge to honor the fallen as well as represent support for those struggling with PTSD and depression. Twenty-eight ImageFIRST - South LA employees, along with 27 of their friends and family members, attended the event wearing camo-patterned shirts to show support, and in the hopes of raising awareness for the cause.
