FARGO, N.D.-Heat Transfer Warehouse donates personalized sweatshirts to McKinley Elementary School students as a part of its Adopt-a-School initiative.
Now in its third year, the company coordinated with the school for the Wildcats design, the school’s mascot and logo. Heat Transfer Warehouse comes up with a new design to incorporate each year.
“Our art department came up with the design, then every employee in Fargo helped out with getting all of the sweatshirts pressed with front and back logos, as well as pressing a paw on the inside so each student’s name can be written on it and they’ll never have to worry about losing their own sweatshirt,” explains Brooke Hestdalen, marketing coordinator.
Hestdalen adds that nine employees paid a visit to the school on Oct. 18 to help distribute the personalized apparel.
“Many of them know Heat Transfer Warehouse by now since we’ve been there for three years, so when they saw us, they knew what we were bringing them,” she states. “They couldn’t wait to get their name called and get their sweatshirt.”
In addition to its partnership with the school, Heat Transfer Warehouse participates in many charity initiatives throughout the year. Earlier this month, the company pledged donations to victims of the Las Vegas strip shooting.
The Adopt-a-School program, however, is one of the company’s exciting ways to give back.
“We want to do what we can to help our community,” Hestdalen notes, “and what better way than to help the kids who are the future of it? It’s a unique way to give back that is rewarding for both the school and our team members.”
The annual event is one of the company’s biggest community involvement projects. In 2016, Heat Transfer Warehouse custom-printed 220 sweatshirts for staff and students at the elementary school.
