Something Remarkable Happened During Our Recent Team-Up With Habitat for Humanity

ImageFIRST makes our associates a priority. We know that each person hired at ImageFIRST is a valuable asset to our team of dedicated healthcare laundry specialists. At ImageFIRST, we don’t just supply medical scrubs in Tennessee and take care of the laundering needs of thousands of medical facilities nationwide: We actively try to create a better patient experience for all patients using the health care system today.

Our associates are at the heart of the ImageFIRST Purpose, and uphold it by maintaining the ImageFIRST Values of being:

  • Respectful
  • Safe
  • Honest
  • And Remarkable

Whether they’re delivering bed sheets for healthcare in Memphis, TN, or participating in recognition programs at any of our nationwide locations, ImageFIRST associates are indeed remarkable. During one community giving event this past month, an unexpected turn led to all Ft. Myers ImageFIRST employees being heavily impacted by the amazing opportunity to compassionately help a fellow associate.

The Incredible Story

ImageFIRST Ft. Myers had planned their quarterly community giving event with Habitat for Humanity. Associates would volunteer and spend time helping to build local homes for those in need.

Unbeknownst to the staff, a new hire named Yaisy Sejas Serpa, who had joined the ImageFIRST team about a month prior to the event, had been told by Habitat for Humanity that she would be receiving her new home this Mother’s Day. Yaisy had already spent many hours of her own time volunteering with Habitat for Humanity, and was eager to join ImageFIRST Ft. Myers associates that day. This amazing associate not only worked daily helping others with ImageFIRST, but she also volunteered her own time to Habitat Humanity to give back to an organization that had provided her with so much help.

When ImageFIRST Ft. Myers’ fellow associates recognized that simple fact, the entire mood shifted, and everyone felt more connected to the program. Our associates had a newfound appreciation for the impact that their quarterly community giving events have on their community. Knowing that Habitat Humanity had helped a member of the ImageFIRST family, every associate pitched in a little harder than usual. More importantly, each associate was indelibly changed by seeing first-hand how their work in the community can have such a profound impact.
