Lafayette Elementary Lemonade Stand

Each year, Lafayette Elementary holds a charity event for a cause chosen by the students – one that is near and dear to their hearts. This year, Stephanie Downing’s second grade class chose Imagine!, and decided to add some chill to the end of the school year with a Lemonade Stand. They raised almost $200 in about an hour! Most importantly, they appreciate that Imagine! is an vital part of our community and helps people they know – their friends, siblings, even themselves. The students are already gearing up to raise even more next year!

Jun-27-2019

Today we’d like to thank the good folks at McGuckin Hardware. Earlier this week, they presented us with a “big check” from their register round-up last month. Imagine! is most grateful to McGuckin! Their round-up donation will provide emerging technologies to people with intellectual disabilities so they can experience greater self-reliance. Examples include iPads that can “talk” to Amazon Echo/Google Home to follow a recipe, turn off lights, listen to music, and more!
