Leadership Johns Creek (LJC) hosted a “Non-Profit Expo” Nov. 8, as LJC class members met with local non-profits to learn more about the organizations, form relationships and advocate for non-profits in the community.
Twenty non-profit organizations from Johns Creek and North Fulton participated in the expo, part of LJC’s Non-Profit Program class day.
Non-profits who participated included: Johns Creek Arts Center, Johns Creek Symphony Orchestra, Civitan Club, Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta, Johns Creek Convention & Visitors Bureau, Johns Creek Veterans Association, Rotary Club of Johns Creek-North Fulton, Vet Buds, Autrey Mill Nature Preserve, Johns Creek Beautification, Keep North Fulton Beautiful, A Beacon of Hope, Foster Care Support Foundation, Habitat for Humanity, Community Outreach at Perimeter Church, North Fulton Community Charities, Summit Counseling Center, Clean Air Campaign, The Drake House, Johns Creek Relay for Life/American Cancer Society and Special Olympics of Georgia.
LJC class members also learned in-depth information about how non-profits function and how to support the organizations through volunteering and fundraising. After lunch, the group sorted non-perishable items they later donated to North Fulton Community Charities and later wrote thank you letters to military members stationed overseas.
