Invest in the mission. Spread the message that community thrives when community collaborates!
For almost five years, the Korey Johnson Foundation has continued its commitment to teach youth compassion and philanthropy by highlighting the importance of giving and receiving with an emphasis on giving. That is the sole purpose of the Foundation. We recognize that we have a short time to invest in the lives of our youth as they grow into adults. Annually, October through May of the following year we use the game of billiards combined with life lessons to expose youth ages 6-18 to a creative learning experience that will help develop the seeds of self-worth.
Since 2012, our foundation has aimed to make the first day of school for our area youth a pleasant experience by providing backpacks and school supplies. This mission is accomplished when we host our annual Can Skate community event which has also been featured annually on Fox 2 News. Our annual back to school skating party targets under-served elementary school students.
The following goals guide our efforts:
Distribute a minimum of 1000 backpacks with school supplies at Can Skate 2019 and future Can Skate events
Request each student bring 5 canned goods to the event for donation to a local charity
