For families who are dealing with a critically ill child, every day is filled with challenges. Small daily activities can be a struggle, especially when nearly the whole day is spent at the hospital. The Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC), an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting the health of children, helps alleviate one burden that many families with sick children face: What to eat for dinner. The organization prepares meals for families staying at their center through their Cooks for Kids Program to help enrich their daily lives as they endure a difficult time.
The RMHC is one of the charities that we at ImageFIRST donate our time and money to in our effort to give back to our community. Giving back to the community is part of our initiative to bring lasting change for individuals in need by supporting and contributing to multiple causes. We put our community at the heart of our purpose – just like our customers, our customers’ patients, and our associates do. Community giving is something we put our focus towards as a company, as it allows our associates to give back, be a part of a great cause, and be engaging. How awesome is that? Participating in community events is just one benefit of working for ImageFIRST.
As part of our goal to volunteer on an ongoing basis, we decided to participate in the RMHC Cooks for Kids Program. On March 3, some of our associates in the corporate office went to the local RMHC to cook up a delicious homemade meal for the families staying there. The associates were so happy to be able to be a part of the program, since many families with sick kids do not have the energy, resources, or time to make or buy a meal. It was a great time cooking with each other and interacting with the families we were helping.
We’ve been partnered with the RMHC throughout the country since 2013 to support the organization’s programs, which aim to directly enhance the health and wellbeing of young ones. We also provided the organization with in-kind donations such as servicing their laundry. We definitely look forward to volunteering for RMHC again in the future!
ImageFIRST’s corporate location is certainly not the only one to participate in community giving. ImageFIRST Kansas City associates also participate in regular volunteer work. As a healthcare laundry service company near Kansas City, MO and beyond, we aim to provide remarkable service that sets us apart from the rest and impacts the lives of those around us in a positive way. That’s why our associates continue to show their care and support even after they’ve clocked out for the day, by simply giving back to their community.
