Imagine LA Kids and Their Families Celebrate the Start of Another School Year

One of the most important outcomes of Imagine LA's program is that our kids not only stay in school and graduate, but thrive there with the support of their mentors. So we celebrated the start of another school year on August 11 with our families and those of our partner non-profits Oasis Kids and Alexandria House.

The event was all about celebrating the return to school and helping our families be prepared and confident. Kids received backpacks filled with age-appropriate school supplies (assembled at our partner LA Works' Pop-Up Day of Service in Santa Monica that morning), haircuts and lots more. There was food, games at Oasis Church's indoor/outdoor space, pampering by the always amazing Beauty Board, and lots of talk about the school year ahead.

A big shout out goes to the generous team of volunteers from Oasis Church, Beauty Board, Alexandria House and Imagine LA!
