July 8: Nonprofit July

Calling our Non-profit members. We’re switching it up for the month of July. We want to spotlight our nonprofit members. We will have a series of short nonprofit member spotlights showcasing our community of those who pour their hearts into our city for the good of others. The first 15 nonprofits will get 3 minutes each to tell us why they do the work they do. So my nonprofit friends, submit your organization TODAY. Email NKBPA.info@gmail.com if you are interested in participating. YOU MUST BE AN NKBPA MEMBER.

Come learn about what they are doing and see if there is a place our members would like to get involved.

The meeting location is to be determined, but we will notify everyone as soon as we have that location.

Non-profits please arrive at 7:45am on JULY 8. The meeting will adjourn at 9am. SO NO GOING OVER YOUR 3-MINUTE TIME SLOT.

We are also looking for a breakfast sponsor this month. If you want to sponsor email Ethan Kirk ekirk@emeraldyouth.org.

Be a Secret Santa at Fulton High School

One of the membership’s favorite gatherings happens this month and it is an opportunity to be Santa for a high school student. No, you don’t have to don the suit, high school kids wouldn’t be seen near Santa’s shack and that big red suit, that wouldn’t be cool. Everyone should feel the joy of the season and you can spread that cheer to a high school student who might not have gifts under their tree.

Don’t miss this meeting at 7:45am on November 9th at Fulton High. We will meet in the Library. This meeting will also have an auction to raise money for the Secret Santa program, word has it that Broadway Carpets will bring a special rug to auction for the holidays.
