Our Lancaster Team Made Us Proud This Mother’s Day

Posted by ImageFIRST on Jun 7, 2017 1:08:38 PM

The annual Make-A-Wish Truck Convoy event is held every year on Mother’s Day in Lancaster, PA. This event benefits people in the Make-A-Wish® Foundation’s Philadelphia, Northern Delaware and Susquehanna Valley locations. Our ImageFIRST Lancaster office has participated in the event for the past several years, and we’re proud of our associates engaging in the community giving opportunity.

What is the Annual Make-A-Wish Mother’s Day Truck Convoy?

The Annual Make-A-Wish Mother’s Day Truck Convoy has served almost 6,000 local families and children for the last 30 years. It’s a community-wide celebration and effort that’s used to grant the wishes of children in need throughout the local areas.

Families, friends and companies are all invited to join in and become part of the team to raise funds for children who are facing life-threatening medical conditions in the Northern Delaware, Philadelphia, and Susquehanna Valley regions. In 2016, this Make-A-Wish event won the Guinness World Record for the World’s Longest Truck Convoy with over 500 trucks! The event provides fun for the whole family with a carnival atmosphere that has games, popular costumed characters, delicious food and live bands.

How does ImageFIRST contribute?

Our ImageFIRST Lancaster office has participated in the Mother’s Day Truck Convoy event for the last several years, and they’re also a proud “Wish Friends” sponsor of the event. This is just one of the many community giving events that we participate in every quarter across the nation. Often, these events turn into associate engagement activities, as they inspire our associates to help those in need.

Recently, the Lancaster associates merged their families with the rest of the ImageFIRST family by coordinating an Easter Egg Hunt for their children and grandchildren. Over the course of the day, they had fun with a variety of crafts, face painting, prizes, planting flowers and a visit from the Easter Bunny.
