100 Kids, 6,000 Books!

Ackerman-Estvold's employees partnered to sponsor 100 children through the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, a national program facilitated locally by the Souris Valley United Way. For $25 dollars, a child will receive 60 books from the time they are born until the age of five, receiving one each month. We couldn't have found a better program to support, and we thank all of our employees for their generosity. Not only did we meet our goal of sponsoring 100 children, we exceeded it!

Project Inspiration: Our inspiration for this project came from our employees. As an organization made up of many young professionals who have children of their own participating in the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, we wanted to make this a reality for all area kids. We also wanted to help the Souris Valley United Way reach their campaign goal while tying it back to MSUís Power of 100. It was a win-win in our eyes, and we couldnít have been more proud to be a participant in Power of 100!
