ImageFIRST Brightens the Walls of the Boys & Girls Club of Philadelphia

At ImageFIRST, we believe that making a small change in our community has a big impact on everyone. On a regular basis, ImageFIRST associates across the country work not only in the healthcare facilities that we proudly serve, but also with the charitable organizations that help community members in our local area.

On January 27th, ImageFIRST associates traveled to an offsite in Wayne, PA. Working with Impact 4 Good, an organization that facilitates socially responsible teambuilding activities, we spent hours painting pre-sketched tiles. Fun for everyone involved, the artistic expression was for a good cause. When we finished, 30 tiles came together to form a large mural that was then donated to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Philadelphia.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Philadelphia were founded in 1887. Since its inception, the nonprofit organization has lent its facilities and its resources to improving the lives of young people. The organization strives to enable young men and women to become productive, caring and responsible citizens.

Along with the mural, we also donated a check for $250 to go towards all the good that the nonprofit does in the local area. Jason Newman, a Program Director for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Philadelphia, personally thanked the associates in a video, saying that the mural and donation were a reminder “that a smile and a positive attitude can go a long way to making life better.”

January 27th was ImageFIRST Day, our company holiday in which we celebrate all of our associates and recognize those who make an exemplary contribution to ImageFIRST. This year marked our fourth annual event in a tradition that just keeps getting better. In addition to being an occasion for celebrating associates, ImageFIRST Day gives everyone at our company a chance to be engage in team-building activities and community giving events.

We’ve always relished the opportunity to make a small positive change -- after all, it’s part of our purpose to build a great company by making a positive impact on our communities, as well as on our associates, our customers and their patients. Now in our 50th year of service, we intend to uphold the tradition for many years to come.
