At ImageFIRST, we work to enrich our communities. By providing healthcare linen services, scrubs, gowns, cubicle curtains, medical waste removal and more to medical facilities, we’re working to improve the elements at the core of the patient experience.
Our work doesn’t end there, however. We regularly travel outside of the healthcare centers we serve to help those in need.
ImageFIRST locations across the nation regularly participate in charity events. Sometimes, one of our locations will have a charity drive for monetary donations to a local non-profit. Other times, a location will donate resources to a local shelter. Often, teams will go out and spend a few hours working with a charity to package food, clean a local park, help in a building project for disadvantaged families or make another notable dedication of time and effort.
While we encourage positively affecting our communities, some of our associates and management team go above our high standard and set their own. Proud of these individuals, we like to feature them from time to time.
Scott Majewski, the general manager of the Chicago North office, sits on the board of Back On My Feet. Back On My Feet is a non-profit organization that organizes runs in cities across the country to benefit the homeless. The organization takes donations and uses them to provide community support as well as employment and housing resources to the homeless.
ImageFIRST partners with Back On My Feet in several cities by providing employment opportunities to participants who successfully complete the first phase of the program and move on to the “Next Steps.” Back On My Feet’s Chicago branch has given us an incredibly valuable associate at that location.
Lindsey Crittle, an individual whose life has been impacted by Back On My Feet in Chicago, is an associate at ImageFIRST Chicago. Lindsey’s story was recently featured in a video from Back On My Feet, and we’re proud to have been a part of it. In the video, Lindsey explains how the organization helped him prepare for and secure employment. A $100 donation to Back On My Feet enabled Lindsey to have transportation to and from our facility during his first month of work.
