In 2015, Teens for Teens paired up with Imagine, A Center for Coping with Loss. On May 6th, 2015 we held a gala function to benefit them. Imagine is dedicated to providing free year-round peer grief support groups for New Jersey children and their families. Imagine currently serves 204 grieving children and adults every two weeks in their peer support groups and has provided training and education for over 2,290 teachers, parents, coaches, and youth in 2014 alone. Teens for Teens gave $21,500 from the benefit gala to Imagine, A Center for Coping with Loss. To learn more about or help Imagine, visit Imagine's website.
NOTE FROM THE IMAGINE PROGRAM DIRECTOR, MANDI ZUCKER
Teens for Teens not only put on a beautiful event that benefitted Imagine financially but helped raise awareness about children's grief and the services we provide, which is as important as the money they raised! The fact that the organization is run by teens could not be more impressive because the whole event, including the planning, was so professional. And they continue to support us long after the event by being wonderful ambassadors and through volunteers for other events we have. It was a pleasure to work with them and we look forward to a long relationship with Teens for Teens.
