Year Round Clothing Drive

A little bird told us that you're the kind of person that will give the "shirt off your back". Great! We want it!

The SAAGNY Foundation supports several outstanding organizations that deliver services to the homeless every week. Your donation of wearables like misprints, discontinued items, showroom samples etc., will give you that warm, fuzzy feeling that goes with doing a good deed. (And don't forget, you'll get a tax deduction from Uncle Sam as well.) Include the packing list and receipt in the box of clothing and we'll send a confirmation of your donation back to you. Please contact the SAAGNY office if you have clothing to donate.

Writing Instrument Drive

Since this program began, The SAAGNY Foundation has collected over 1.1 million writing instruments and sent them to needy school districts in the tri-state area. We've received hundreds of thank you letters from appreciative kids. Your misprints and discontinued items will make a tremendous difference in the education of these children.

You can bring your overruns and misprints to any SAAGNY trade show or meeting and we will take them from you.  Or you can call the SAAGNY office for shipping information for large bulk supply.

Past Foundation Events

Howard Alan Blum 5K

Former Foundation Chair Rhonda Blum  lost her brother, Howard Alan Blum, at the age of 16 to cancer. For many years, his death was the deepest, darkest secret of her life. Her parents way of dealing with their grief was to bury it, and so his name was not spoken in the family except in hushed whispers. The family was torn apart.

For several years The SAAGNY Foundation and Rhonda Blum put together a 5K Fun Run at PROMOTIONS EAST in her brother's memory.  This was a way to bring his memory from the darkness into the light. In just three years, the Foundation raised over $10,000 to help children and their families that have been affected by cancer and other tragedies. 

Fund Raising

In order to fund our charitable work, The SAAGNY Foundation conducts various fundraisers throughout the year - a Chinese Auction or Tricky Tray at the SAAGNY Fall Showcase, a 50/50 raffle at the SAAGNY Winter Showcase, and a note card sale featuring artwork created by the children at Happiness is Camping and the Hilltop School.
