Lauren Storm and Do Something 101 Help Needy Students!

IMTA alum Lauren Storm is working with teen volunteers to support a nationwide campaign to collect school supplies for students in need hosted by Do and Staples, Inc. Lauren helped stuff 5,000 bags with pencils, pens, calculators and binders that will be distributed to local teens before school starts this Fall. These supplies will help more than 11 million children in the United States who do not have basic school supplies. Kids can help in this national drive that benefits local students in their own communities by donating pencils, notebooks and other school supplies at their local Staples locations through August 31.

Lauren recently shot the comedy I Love You Beth Cooper co-starring with Hayden Panettiere. She plays Treece in this movie based on the book Beth Cooper by Larry Dolye. Lauren competed at IMTA in New York in 1999 and describes her IMTA experience, saying, “I ended up getting a lot of response from theatrical agencies and was asked to relocate to LA for pilot season. I tried it out for 6 months and got my first job, so I stayed a little longer and booked again.” Lauren has guest starred in many television shows such as Grounded for Life, 7th Heaven with IMTA alum Jessica Biel, CSI:Miami, 24, Malcolm in the Middle and Boston Public. She is best known for her continuing role as Taylor Hagan in the NBC/Discovery Channel hit series Flight 29 Down, which also stars another IMTA alum Jeremy Kissner. Lauren was in the movie The Game Plan and has been busy with many new projects such as The Jerk Theory, Together Again for the First Time, The Inner Circle and Resurrection Mary.
