We are so happy to now support Veterans in the Metro Boston Area!  To date we have supported 99 Veterans, 35 children (our Little Heroes) in 36 communities across the commonwealth.  And our requests for support continue to grow.

Imagine works with local furniture bank

The Imagine Project, Inc. is so happy to announce our work with Fresh Start furniture bank in Hudson. Fresh start helps restore hope, dignity, and stability in our community by recycling donated furniture and housewares to people in need. They accept donations of gently used household items and distribute them free of charge. Imagine now refers our Veterans to this wonderful, 100% volunteer based organization to help them get furniture and housewares when they move into their own home! Please consider this great organization when you have furniture and home items that you no longer need, we have seen first hand the tremendous value this brings to our Heroes!

Imagine Project is supported by local school

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.”
