REACH NASPO Cares Update

The Eastern Region won a lively competition at the 2022 REACH Conference, and their charity of choice, Operation Breakthrough, received a donation of $2,000. 

Jennifer Heinemann, Director of Stewardship and Planned Giving for Operation Breakthrough shared, "We feel very lucky that NASPO's Eastern Region chose to play for the children of Operation Breakthrough - and won! The prize money will help us start the new school year strong for our 700 students who range in age from six weeks to 18 years. Your kindness will help provide learning opportunities they might not otherwise have. Thank you so much for making our children the real winners at your game night!"

Thank you to all of our REACH attendees who participated in NASPO Cares. You're making a difference!
