For the second time this year, the students of Immaculate Conception school supported a Veteran moving into his own apartment. Jeffrey had been living out of his car, he is a seven year Gulf War Veteran. Thanks to these amazing students, Jeffrey now has everything he needs for his home. IC Students are truly making a difference for our Veterans!
The Imagine Project is so grateful to the Student Council at Immaculate Conception School in Marlborough for their incredible support of our Veterans! We were so happy to meet with them and share stories of our work and how they can make a difference in the lives of our Veterans! The students at IC raised $385.00 from “Dress Down Days” where they raise money for a local charity by dressing out of uniforms on special days. The funds from the Student Council went directly to Vielka and her children who moved into their own home!
The Advanced Math & Science Academy girls middle school basketball team joined us Friday to host our 2nd February dinner. Our Heroes were served pizza, a beverage cart wheeled refreshments through the dining hall and made to order ice cream sundaes with homemade cookies topped off their dinner. A huge thank you to the team and coach Jenna for making this night special for our Heroes. “It’s so nice to see the kids here and spend some time with them,” Keith, a Veteran at dinner commented, “They are the reason I served my country, to try and make it better for them.”
Imagine Ambassador, Joey, speaks with local Marlborough cable station about his experience supporting our Happy Holidays for our Heroes event. Joey and his siblings have been supporting Imagine since it started working with Veterans in 2010. Imagine is so grateful to currently have 17 Ambassadors between the ages of 8-17.
