Imagine Blue Backpacks for Utah Foster Kids

Every year across the nation, close to half a million foster children go back to school.

Holiday Giving 2016: Imagine Learning Gives Back

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!

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.
