Tampa, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/28/2016 -- ImageFIRST, a healthcare laundry provider with locations across and outside the U.S., often works with local charitable organizations in order to connect with and serve the communities in which its clients and associates live. One of its larger national partners, the Ronald McDonald House, provides families of children accessing specialized medical treatment with places to stay at little or no cost – a natural match for ImageFIRST, which serves many of the hospitals and clinics used by the charity's participants.
ImageFIRST Tampa, serving three Ronald McDonald houses in St. Petersburg, one in Tampa, and one in Orlando, is proud to announce that it has recently been awarded the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Tampa Bay Friends Award for its work at the first four of these locations.
The Friends Award, which honors "individuals or groups that have gone beyond the call of duty, providing for the needs of pediatric families at Ronald McDonald House of Tampa Bay," was given to ImageFIRST Tampa in recognition of the many in-kind donations it has provided during their partnership with the organization. At the Ronald McDonald House locations in St. Petersburg, Tampa, and Orlando, ImageFIRST Tampa has purchased all linens used by the facilities, and continually launders these items, all at no cost to the charity.
The services provided by ImageFIRST Tampa have thus far amounted to more than $66,000 in in-kind donations. In addition to the donation of linens, the healthcare launderer, which services medical facilities near Gainesville, FL with medical scrubs, gowns, robes, uniforms, and sheets, picks up Ronald McDonald House sheets and towels, thoroughly cleans all linens, folds each item, and returns them to each location. This assistance saves the charitable organization money while also assisting the families staying at each Ronald McDonald house, who might otherwise have to launder these items themselves.
ImageFIRST Tampa associates are proud to embody the company's tradition of working to improve their communities, and look forward to continuing their relationship with nearby Ronald McDonald House locations.
