OSHKOSH, Wis.--In 2016, 767 non-profit organizations, schools, religious groups and charitable projects put promotional products to work, using $500 in-kind grants from the one by one grant program. In celebration of the program’s 10th anniversary, 4imprint doubled its commitment to this work, providing at least two $500 in-kind promotional products grants each business day.
Of the 767 in-kind promotional products grants awarded in 2016, grants were given to 149 organizations in the 4th quarter. Among the 4th quarter recipients:
- The Casey Cares Foundation will give Flashlight with Pen and Lanyard to pediatric nurses, social workers, child life staff and hospice workers to use when they are caring for hospitalized children. It symbolizes how the foundation can be a light for families dealing with the diagnosis and treatment of life-threatening illnesses.
- The Wichita Adult Literacy Council will use Value Grocery Tote bags at their annual book fair in March 2017. Patrons fill the bags during the fundraiser, which features over 100,000 books and supports their many community literacy programs.
- Friendship Circle International is hosting a charity bicycle ride from Miami to Key West. Riders will receive a Stockton Power Bank to keep their cell phones charged, ensuring they stay on the right route.
“We continue to be impressed and amazed by what these organizations can accomplish with a little creativity and passion,” said Kevin Lyons-Tarr, CEO, 4imprint. “Their stories both inspire us and remind us that even a small gesture can have a significant impact when it’s paired with a powerful message about an important cause.”
