JemCon is pleased to announce its partnership with Fill This House, a registered 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to helping youth aging out of foster care. Too frequently foster families release teens when they turn 18 with little or no adult support. Many of these youth are as young as 16 and have very few possessions, if any, when they age out of the system.
Fill This House provides new household items to these young adults who are now living on their own. Since 2012, the organization has helped over 500 young people in Cuyahoga County and helps on average 80 foster kids each year within the greater Cleveland area. All proceeds from the 2018 JemCon Charity Auction will be donated to Fill this House.

In addition to raising funds via the Charity Auction, JemCon will also be collecting new household items to be given to Fill this House. Attendees are welcome and encouraged to bring new, small, household items. A complete list of items that are accepted can be found here: https://www.fillthishouse.org/donatingitems
