About Event

Every year Vizient and the family of companies sponsor a volunteer event for their employees to work with local non-profit organizations. This event involves employees giving their time (one work day) to go and work with the identified non-profit organizations. The employee volunteer hours for the day are turned into monetary donations to the non-profit of their choice.
iM has been fortunate to be one of the non-profit organizations chosen to participate in this event for the past four years. Our participation in this event has given us access to knowledgeable company leaders and passionate employees who support the cause. They have helped us develop program infrastructure, increase awareness of the program and overall grow the organization to new levels. Over the years, iM has raised $16,486 from participating in this event.

Thank you—Vizient, and the family of companies! We are grateful for the support and more importantly, proud to partner with a company that has a genuine desire to positively impact the community. For this year’s project, 50+ volunteers including Irving ISD teachers and staff will engage the SRC (Student Reassignment Center) students using the LIFE Budgeting activity.

Life is full of choices. As an adult, you will be challenged daily to make good choices and live responsibly—with your health, career path, social life, and with your finances. The LIFE activity will teach youth the principles of managing money while life throw’s a few “curve balls” along the way!
