Dolly Parton's Imagination Library Sponsors


Imagination Library Sponsors

Thank you, sponsors, for helping children ages 0-5 build a library of their own even before entering kindergarten! Not only does your sponsorship change a child's life, but it also grows your brand by gaining exposure to Heartland United Way’s volunteers and corporate partners, and it supports causes and initiatives that improve the lives of our most vulnerable neighbors. Thank you for investing in our communities.

Imagination Bacon 2021

Imagination Bacon - Bacon & Brews for Books is a bacon and brew fest featuring local craft brew, wine, and non-alcoholic beverage samples alongside unique bacon-inspired appetizers.

Last year, the event brought in $46,942 after selling 552 tickets! All proceeds from Imagination Bacon benefit the Heartland United Way Dolly Parton Imagination Library Program to ensure all children start kindergarten with a library of their own! With your support and generous heart, children in Hall, Hamilton, Howard, and Merrick Counties receive FREE books to build a library of their own prior to entering kindergarten. In 2021, 730 children enrolled in the program, 3,992 were served, and 665 children graduated.
