Find Out How to Do a Good Deed at 2022 NEC

Zachary's MissionMake a difference this year during the 2022 NEC by supporting our national charity, Zachary’s Mission. Each year, SGMP adopts a charity in the host city/state of the National Education Conference. It is often a fantastic way to do a good deed and meet someone new with a common interest!

Zachary’s Mission, a non-profit organization, supports Pittsburgh families of medically fragile children by providing basic necessities, financial assistance, and programs that nurture emotional well-being. Based in the greater Pittsburgh area, they provide assistance to those families in need right now and you can help, too.

Ways to Help

  • Donate online – Funds are used to purchase items, such as for the Zack Packs, grocery and gas gift cards, parking passes, and more.
  • Sponsor a Zack Pack for $50.00 –  This quality embroidered backpack is filled with toiletries, snacks, journals and creature comforts and given to families staying in the hospital with their medically fragile child. They are designed to satisfy basic human needs. Sponsored Zack Packs can be given In Memory of, In Honor of, Sponsored by, or Anonymously given.
  • On-site donations will be accepted during the NEC conference. At present, they are specifically in need of 12oz shampoo and 12oz conditioners. Additional items can include facial wash, lotion, toothbrushes, toothpaste, body wash and beverage tumblers.

Whether or not you will be attending the NEC, you can make a difference for children in the Pittsburgh area.
