How We Celebrated Community Giving Day in San Antonio

If there’s one constant about the people who work in the medical industry, it’s that they genuinely want to help people. From nurses to administrators to those who supply medical scrubs in San Antonio, TX, the people in our industry want to make a difference in the lives of others.

At ImageFIRST San Antonio, our associates participate in acts of charitable giving year-round. Several times a year, our associates donate their time, money and resources to making a meaningful impact in our local community. This past month, associates across the nation engaged in our annual Community Giving Day on October 7th, celebrated by ImageFIRST throughout the United States and Puerto Rico.

Community Giving Day is an annual event in which every ImageFIRST location across the country participates in a charitable event at a local organization of their choosing. Some locations worked to prepare food and feed the homeless, others went to their local Goodwill, and some maintained local parks and public property.

At ImageFIRST San Antonio, we committed ourselves to a need felt across the entire South Texas region.

Associates from ImageFIRST San Antonio donated blood at South Texas Blood & Tissue. The South Texas medical system, like many across the U.S., is always in need of blood from donors to be used in transfusions. The ImageFIRST San Antonio team eagerly donated their time and blood to help the community and bolster the supply of donor blood in the area. 

South Texas Blood & Tissue was greatly appreciative of our volunteers who gave blood, and their management went out of their way to thank our associates.

Overall, more than 350 associates from ImageFIRST locations across the country participated in our company’s annual Community Giving Day. We work to embody the change we want to see in our community - our annual event gives us a chance to do it together!

At ImageFIRST San Antonio, giving back is intertwined with who we are as a company. Helping and providing for people is what we do. To learn more about the charitable events we’ve participated in or about our nurse scrubs in San Antonio, TX, visit http://san-antonio.imagefirst.com/.
