“I dialed 2-1-1, and I was connected with you guys. It was just so much stress off of my shoulders because I really did not know what else I was going to do.”

I feel it is important to help others and be an active part of the community I live in. Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library program is the vessel that allows me to be a part of so many families’ lives in a positive way. Knowing I am helping create a stronger relationship with families makes it all worthwhile.

It’s a wonderful place to hand over your financial burdens with the confidence that it’s going to stay here, and it’s not going to go anywhere else. This is a hidden jewel. It’s a hidden treasure. You just fit right in as family.”
