ACHE Service Opportunity – “Fill the Bus” School Supplies Drive

September 29, 2016 10:00 PM | Anonymous

Are you looking for a way to contribute to the New Orleans community while you are attending the ACHE conference this year? If so, we have an opportunity that will allow you to make a difference for children and families in the greater New Orleans area!

For this year’s Annual Conference & Meeting, ACHE has formed a relationship with the New Orleans Kids Partnership (NOKP), an organization committed to “expanding access to high quality services for children, youth, and families in Greater New Orleans.” One of the goals of NOKP is to provide free or low-cost professional development opportunities for professionals in nonprofit organizations who serve children and families in the city.

To help them accomplish their goal, we will offer free participation in select segments of the conference program to NOKP professionals. Additionally, we plan to host a school supply drive for some of NOKP’s partner organizations. When you are packing for New Orleans, please plan to include some school supplies to help fill a bus for the children of the Crescent City. If you can’t sacrifice shoe room for school supplies, there will be locations near the Hotel Monteleone where you can buy supplies for the drive as well.

Thank you for helping us make a difference in our host city! For more information about the NOKP, please visit the organization website.
