For our fifth year of the NAPEO Gives Back initiative, we partnered with Give Kids the World Village, an organization that provides magical theme park experiences to children with critical illnesses and their families. GKTW allows the kids to take a break from critical care treatments so that they can just be children, experiencing joy and making unforgettable memories.

We raised more money than we ever have, and we were able to hand off a $300,000 check to Give Kids the World Village. This money will bring the joy of Christmas to critically ill children and their families year-round through a remarkable initiative to install millions of LED lights throughout the village’s sprawling campus, creating a sparkling winter wonderland every day.

Since 2019, NAPEO Gives Back has made impactful contributions to the host cities where our Annual Conference & Marketplace is held and has collectively raised over $764,000.
