The Angel Student Assistance Program is a confidential behind-the-scenes PTSA program.  It is made possible by donations from our IMS community.  This program has two components which are monetary donations as well as donations of items such as bedding, clothing and toiletries. 

This program is in its 5th year and has evolved with the changing needs of kids and families.  This program recognizes that at certain times in life kids need a little extra support.  The children are selected by the IMS counselors and their identity is anonymous.  Your donations go a long way to make a family from IMS breathe a little easier when they are experiencing tough financial times and need a little extra help. 

Monetary Donations

Donations can be made online throughout the school year, but look to donate during fall registration as that is when we directly ask for donations.  If you haven't yet contributed and you would like to donate, please click here or send/deliver a check made out to the IMS PTSA to the school and reference the Angel Program in the memo line.  Your donation is tax deductible.  100% of the monetary donations go back to the student & their family in the form of gift cards twice a year.

Also, if you are in need of help this year, please contact the school counselors directly, the Angel Program would love to support your child.

Donations of Items

Occasionally, throughout the year, IMS counselors notice a child who may have some needs such as bedding, clothes or other needs. 

Our PTSA has set up an anonymous system to help get that need met.  Once we receive the request from our school counselors, we distribute a sign up requesting specific items.  Items as small as toiletry kits and shoes to dressers and bunk beds.  If you're able to supply any of these items you can sign up and we will arrange to pick up the item/s and deliver to the student in need.

If you would like to be added to the distribution list to be contacted when a need arises, please see our complete list of volunteer opportunities and add your name to the Angel Student Assistance Program. You can remove yourself at any time by going to My Account.

Additionally, if you know someone whose child could use some help, please tell the child to contact their IMS counselor.
