Welcome to the Korey Johnson Foundation, where excitement and impact collide! Our Foundation is on a mission to light up the lives of young individuals, instilling in them the values of compassion and philanthropy. We're passionate about the incredible force of giving and receiving, with a strong commitment to giving back to our community. Founded by a visionary with a one-of-a-kind approach, we're thrilled to announce the revival of our signature program, P.O.O.L. (Providing Opportunities Otherwise Lost)!!!! Starting November 18, at 1 p.m. at Behind the 8 Ball Billiards Parlor and Darts, located at 1165 N Hwy 67, Florissant, MO 63031, we're kicking off with a bang. We're partnering with the Annie Malone Children’s Home, and together, we'll showcase the true meaning of partnership. But the excitement doesn't end there! When P.O.O.L. sessions wrap up, we shift our focus to the Rides and School Supplies annual Car Show at O'Fallon Park YMCA in August. This event is all about celebrating our community, with free haircuts, thrilling science experiments, and backpack giveaways. Our partnership with Derrick Walker, the CEO of Rides and School Supplies, is a testament to the power of collaboration. Together, we've given away over 30,000 backpacks, and Rides and School Supplies has awarded over $50,000 in scholarships to local high school students. We're all about the positive impact of working together to strengthen our community. None of these amazing endeavors would be possible without the unwavering support of our Foundation's dedicated supporters and the incredible community that surrounds us. At the Korey Johnson Foundation, our goal is to empower the children in our community to take charge of their environment and emerge as strong leaders. We don't just talk the talk; we walk the walk. Though we may be a small organization, the ripple effect of our actions in the community is undeniably powerful. Join us on this thrilling journey to make a difference, one young mind at a time. Thank you for being a part of this incredible adventure with us!
