ImageFIRST North Carolina Donates to Operation Christmas Child

Posted by ImageFIRST on Dec 18, 2017 11:49:44 AM

At ImageFIRST, we’re more than just suppliers of patient gowns in Atlanta, GA, and beyond. This past November, the associates at ImageFIRST North Carolina collected toys and other supplies to give to the organization, Operation Christmas Child.

Throughout the month, our North Carolina team was able to gather 65 shoe boxes full of toys and other gifts to donate to these children in need. These shoe boxes were stuffed with all kinds of gifts for children as young as two of age and as old as 14. Gifts included things like clothing, dolls, action figures, stuffed animals, sports equipment, puzzles, school supplies, as well as personal care items.

To grant the children with the joy of opening a present, our fellow ImageFIRST associates wrapped every box with holiday wrapping paper. Some even took it upon themselves to hand deliver the boxes to the children.

Operation Christmas Child is just one of the many projects operated by international relief organization, Samaritan’s Purse. It is their goal to team up with local partners across the globe and give them shoeboxes filled with toys, school supplies, and personal care products to give to children in their communities. The organization ships the boxes not just in our country, but to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease all over the world, as well as children living on Native American reservations right here in the U.S.

The ImageFIRST North Carolina location organized this donation drive with plenty of time for Samaritan’s Purse to deliver the boxes in time for the holidays.

We support organizations worldwide that foster positive change for those in need. We continue to donate time and money to multiple charities chosen by our associates, including groups such as Ronald McDonald Houses, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, March Of Dimes, The American Cancer Society, Habitat for Humanity, Veterans Empowerment Organization, and many more.

At ImageFIRST, we empower our associates to create a culture of teamwork and generosity and in turn, remarkable customer service. Our associates are the driving force behind the way we do business, and by positively impacting the lives of our associates and our community, we can better assist our customers and their patients.

Our customers in Atlanta, GA, and beyond depend on us for their healthcare gowns, scrubs, bed and bath linen, lab coats and more, as well as inventory management services that allow medical facility staff to concentrate on quality patient care.
