A&E Exclusive: Heat Transfer Warehouse Donates Personalized Apparel to Local School


Heat Transfer Warehouse donated personalized sweatshirts to local McKinley Elementary School students as a part of their Adopt-a-School initiative on October 18.

According to Heat Transfer Warehouse Marketing Coordinator Brooke Hestdalen, the company coordinated with the school for the Wildcats design, McKinley’s school mascot and logo. Now in their third year of donating the sweatshirts, 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,” Hestdalen tells A&E magazine.

Nine employees paid a visit to the school to help distribute the personalized apparel. “They were all so excited!” she says. “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. 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. On September 30, the Las Vegas team served lunch at the Salvation Army.

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.”
