During the 2018 FASTSIGNS® International Convention held Jan. 17-20 in Houston, Texas, FASTSIGNS franchisees and their employees, vendors and FASTSIGNS International, Inc. corporate staff participated in the second “FASTSIGNS Community Giveback” to donate care packages for the Michael E. DeBakey Veterans Affairs Medical Center.
“Through the FASTSIGNS Community Giveback Project, our meeting attendees and vendors come together to support a local cause and make a positive impact in the cities that we host our system-wide events in across the country,” said Tracy Lake, Director of Events at FASTSIGNS International, Inc. “We are so grateful for our military servicemen and women. With the help of our partners in giving, we are honored for the opportunity to express our appreciation and donate care packages to patients at Michael E. DeBakey Veterans Affairs Medical Center.”
On Jan. 20 during the FASTSIGNS Community Giveback Breakfast with a Purpose, 375 care packages were assembled. Draw string bags were filled with blankets, socks, hats, playing cards, puzzle books, personal hygiene items and handwritten notes of appreciation. Members of the FASTSIGNS International corporate team visited the VA medical center to deliver the care packages and a banner thanking military members for their service.
Thanks to the FASTSIGNS Community Giveback sponsors 4Ever Products, Canon Solutions America, Colex Finishing Inc., Custom Products Corporation, EPSON, Grimco, Listen360, Miller Weldmaster, N. Glantz & Son and Sign Source USA for their generous contributions to raise $6,750 for the donation items.
