Stuff Your Suitcase
Each year the NSH Convention Committee teams up with the Local Host Committee to help a charitable organization in the Convention’s host city. This year we stuff our suitcase with items to help the Korey Johnson Foundation.
The mission of the Korey Johnson Foundation (KJF) is to teach compassion and philanthropy to youth by highlighting the importance of giving and receiving with an emphasis on giving. It achieves this goal through a variety of programs, including fundraising events where children can participate in activities like skating and bowling by donating non-perishable items. These donations go directly back into the community.
One of its most important projects is its school backpack giveaway. Each the KJF collects and distributes backpacks to students who may be without for the upcoming school year. Over the last six years KJF has given over 2,000 backpacks to the community! They have also been able to donate over 20,000 non-perishable food items to local shelters and other non-profits.
This year, we are asking Convention Attendees to donate to this amazing organization that directly impacts the St. Louis community by brining:
