For those of you who don't already know, we here at ImageFIRST take tremendous pride in the fact that we make it one of our highest priorities to volunteer at local charities and organizations all throughout the year. In fact, this year, we took it upon ourselves to once again volunteer at the Philadelphia Cradles to Crayons, located in Conshohocken, PA.
Cradles to Crayons is a non-profit organization with two locations—one in the Philadelphia, PA area, and one in the Boston, MA area. The organization is relatively new—as it was established in 2002—and has a mission of providing basic living essentials, like clothes, school supplies, and even toys to children up to 12-years-old.
What Our Day at Cradles to Crayons Consisted Of
On Thursday, December 17, about twenty of us headed on over to this awesome non-profit from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM, and helped inspect and package all sorts of donations made from various organizations, like us, into what Cradles to Crayons calls “KidPacks.” Luckily, because the temperatures are dropping, a lot of what we packed up was kids’ hats, coats, and other winter apparel.
We Also Did More Than Just Volunteer This Year!
Aside from spending some time volunteering, we also ran a clothing drive for them at our office. Starting in early November, and running all the way up until the twenty volunteers left, ImageFIRST associates donated gently used or new kids clothing. Furthermore, some associates were even gracious enough to donate other items, such as toys and board games!
In all, we are not only proud of all our associates who volunteered and donated their time to Cradles to Crayons this December, but we are also proud of all of those in our company who gave back to every charity or other local non-profit organization this year!
