New York, NY -- (ReleaseWire) -- 11/22/2017 -- ImageFIRST Healthcare Laundry Specialists' Chicago location recently donated gowns to the Granger Christian School, a college preparatory school in Indiana.
The national medical linen and laundry provider offers healthcare laundry services in Staten Island, NY and throughout the nation, and also participates in ongoing community giving activities throughout the year.
As part of their normal, everyday processes, ImageFIRST associates hand-inspect every sanitized gown that they provide to their medical facility customers. They ensure only gowns in pristine condition are selected and individually wrapped in preparation for delivery. Patient gowns that may be missing ties, or have rips, permanent stains, or other defects are retired and usually discarded.
When ImageFIRST learned that the spouse of one of their customers, a teacher at Granger Christian School, was in need of a linen donation, ImageFIRST associates took clean yet unfit-for-delivery gowns to the school for donation. Pre-kindergarten through 12th-grade students used the repurposed medical gowns as smocks when working on arts and crafts.
"I cannot thank you enough for your kindness in donating the gowns to our school's art program," stated Granger Christian School employee Lindsay Davis. "We use them every day, not only in the art room but also in the classrooms. We are so grateful for your generosity."
