Imagine Blue Backpacks for Utah Foster Kids

Every year across the nation, close to half a million foster children go back to school. Unfortunately, too many of these children have just entered the foster care system with nothing but a few articles of clothing and personal items stuffed into a garbage bag. And school supplies aren't likely to be among those belongings. Imagine Learning Steps Up

Imagine Learning Gives Back in 2016 - Holiday Edition

Every day, caring educators give their all to help kids everywhere succeed, learn, and grow. At Imagine Learning, we enjoy helping educators do all three of these things. But what about kids in the local community--particularly during the holidays? Here's our report for late 2016: Aquarium book box Startup Santa During November and early December of 2016, Imagine Learning employees gathered 1,138 books (some new, some gently used) to donate to United Way's "Startup Santa" project. As part of the fun, employees were invited to decorate a box of books. Ours went swimmingly, as you can see! Stansbury Elementary Each December, Imagine Learning employees give back to disadvantaged kids who otherwise might not get holiday gifts. For example, Stansbury Elementary (Salt Lake City, UT) welcomes many low-income students through its doors daily. Because of donations from Imagine Learning employees, 70 Stansbury students were able to have a happy holiday season in 2016. And we look forward to helping again in 2017! Sponsored Families The holiday season was also a little brighter for 15 other Utah children in four families, thanks to several of our Imagine elves who gathered clothing items, toys, and books for each child on the list. In some cases, employees purchased more than one gift for these kids--and some offered cash donations. We love and appreciate our generous Imagine Learning team for all they do to help children and families each year. Happy New Year!

Bring on the Smiles at "Shoes for School"

Kids tour helicopter at Franklin Elementary (Provo, UT) It's a common scenario each year: teachers use money from their own wallets to purchase school supplies for their classroom. Of course, even when school budgets cover the purchase of school supplies, too many families still can't afford to buy new school clothing, shoes, backpacks, and school supplies for their children. Enter the annual "Shoes for School" campaign. What Is "Shoes for School"? Each year in America, too many underprivileged kids will return to school without even the most basic of school supplies.

Operation Gratitude 2015

Thanksgiving may be over, but gratitude doesn’t have to be. If you’re looking for another way to give thanks, why not consider sending a care package to members of the military, both past and present? At Imagine Learning, our employees enjoy giving back. As our Thanksgiving project, we participated in Operation Gratitude, collecting healthy snacks, personal care products, stuffed animals, and other items for new recruits, current troops, veterans, and wounded warriors. Because of the generosity of our co-workers, we collected even more items this year than in 2014. Take a look at the photo on the right! Our employees also took the time to write notes of thanks to those who serve our country. We know by past experience that this personal touch doesn't go unnoticed.

Imagine Learning gives back to Ferguson School District

The Thanksgiving season is an excellent time to commemorate those who look outside their own blessings and strive to directly fill the needs of others. Imagine Learning employees endeavor to do just that by giving back and recognizing educators, soldiers, and others who bless the lives of those around them.
