ImageFIRST Spreads Holiday Cheer to Operation Christmas Child

Posted by ImageFIRST on Dec 27, 2017 9:55:05 AM

At ImageFIRST, we do much more than deliver medical linen like nurse uniforms in Fort Myers, FL, and throughout the rest of our national service area. We go above and beyond to make a positive impact on associates, medical staff, patients, and the community.

This past November, the North Carolina location of ImageFIRST set a perfect example of how dedicated we are to our communities. Just in time for the holidays, associates from ImageFIRST North Carolina came together to collect and donate toys to Operation Christmas Child.

What is Operation Christmas Child?

Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization. Their mission is to provide children with shoe boxes filled with toys, school supplies, and more. This organization benefits children in need who live in local communities, Native American reservations, and countries throughout the world. Their purpose is to bring a smile to the faces of children who are affected by war, poverty, or disease, and would not otherwise be able to open a present for the holidays.

ImageFIRST North Carolina Associates Give Back

This holiday season, associates at ImageFIRST North Carolina chose to give back to Operation Christmas Child. Throughout the month of November, associates collected 65 shoeboxes full of toys and other goodies to donate to children in need from ages two to 14. Boxes were filled with fun and useful gifts such as:

  • Dolls
  • Stuffed animals
  • Sports equipment
  • Clothing
  • School supplies
  • Coloring books
  • Crafts
  • Puzzles
  • Personal care items

Associates wrapped each box in holiday wrapping paper so that each child would have the joy and excitement of unwrapping a present. A few associates personally delivered the gifts to the organization. Since the drive was completed in November, it gave Operation Christmas Child enough time to ship the presents so children could receive them in time for the holidays.
