GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - Everyone wants the best for their children, including giving them the best education possible. Our next Connecting with Community finalist is In the Image. In the Image in Grand Rapids helps children start their new school year off right by giving them new shoes. They do that and more by collaborating with more than 40 programs in West Michigan.
Nearly 9,000 children from three different school districts in Grand Rapids have benefited from this program at In the Image. Local organizations like Alpha Women's Center, Mel Trotter, Spectrum Health's MOMS Program and The Pregnancy Resource Center collaborate with In The Image through distributing clothing, normal house hold items and baby care items.
In the Image also collaborates with programs outside West Michigan to bring positive change here locally. K.I.D.S. (Kids in Distressed Situations) in New York City works with In The Image to bring not only clothing to West Michigan but toys, books and education materials.
Eva Aguirre Cooper visited In The Image to find out more about the collaboration.
