It’s always the season for giving at ImageFIRST. Although the holidays have come and gone, our generous spirit stays with us year-round. We put making a positive impact on our local communities at the heart of our purpose. While all of our locations have given back to their communities this past year, the ImageFIRST Los Angeles team had a remarkable impact this holiday season. We’re pleased to recap their 2016 Holiday Toy Drive.
The date: December 20, 2016
The place: Grant Elementary School in Long Beach, CA
What happened: A week before the toy drive, the principal of Grant Elementary joined ImageFIRST Los Angeles’ weekly huddle to prep the associates for the big day. Grant Elementary’s principal stated his gratitude for being chosen as ImageFIRST’s charity of choice. Most of the children at Grant Elementary come from low-income families, and when it comes to deciding between necessities and gifts, things like food come first for parents. The associates at ImageFIRST Los Angeles decided to make a team effort so that those children could have both.
About 35 ImageFIRST associates spent the morning purchasing toys for the underprivileged children. Later, the group attended the drive with family members to lend a hand. Between donations from the associates at ImageFIRST Los Angeles and a company match, $11,000 was raised by ImageFIRST for the toy drive. By donating time, toys and funds, we were able to brighten the season for some very special children. The world’s future relies on its youth, and every little bit of giving helps make a difference.
