Every day, charitable organizations work tirelessly to improve their communities. And they often use nonprofit promotional items to help them accomplish their goals, whether they’re providing education or finding new ways to raise funds.
These four stories tell how organizations used nonprofit giveaways purchased with a 4imprint® one by one® grant to help make their part of the world a better place. If you’re looking for fresh ways to turn promotional products into good work, read on for inspiration.
1. Ready to work
NAMI Wake County has been providing mental health education and training for more than 30 years in Raleigh, N.C., and other locations throughout Wake County. The organization has been almost entirely run by volunteers since its founding, with anywhere from 80 to 100 people on their active volunteer list. Recently, the organization used a 4imprint one by one grant to give volunteers an Afton Custom Notebook with Pen as a thank-you gift for their hard work. It also received a Closed-Back Table Throw, a nonprofit promotional product used as part of an event display that shared its brand and increased visibility.
2. Gifts for golfers
Wheelchairs 4 Kids is a Florida-based organization dedicated to improving the lives of children with physical disabilities. In addition to supplying children with custom wheelchairs, it helps widen doors, build ramps, and provides wheelchair lifts and carriers for vehicles. With their grant, the group was able to provide Elite Caps to the nearly 130 people attending a recent golf tournament fundraiser. The money they saved allowed the organization to put more resources into helping children.
3. Creating interactive opportunities
For over three decades, Harmony House in Huntington, W.V., has worked toward its mission to end homelessness. It helps provide the homeless with a place to stay during the day, as well as access to medical and vision care, mental health counseling and work-skills training through their Jobs First program. Using a grant from the 4imprint one by one program, the Jobs First team provided everyone who attended an event with a Promotional Drawstring Sportpack, filled with hygiene products plus a pen and calendar.
4. Spreading awareness and good health
The JBT (Just Been Tested) Foundation, Inc. uses mobile units to provide free health screenings and health education in at-risk urban communities, in underserved neighborhoods and on college campuses. With the help of social media, the organization lets people know when they’re in the neighborhood so they can easily access free mobile healthcare services. The organization also provides information, education and referral services essential to improving patient health. The JBT Foundation used its grant to purchase Hanes® Tagless T-shirts, which are worn to market their brand and spread awareness of their unique service.
