Make A Difference - Volunteer Service Day in NOLA
Conference attendees are volunteering for a rebuild day with St. Bernard Parish (SBP) in NOLA. Now you can join in this give back experience on Sunday, Sept. 24th from 8:00a-12:30p. You'll be busy with home rebuilding and cleaning projects, and will be working alongside the families who are reclaiming their homes and neighborhoods - and you don't need to be a contractor or even handy with tools; you just need the spirit and willingness to give some of your time and effort.
Use this link to complete the combined signup/waiver form. Spots are limited, so be sure to sign up soon!
We'd also like to thank NRTA member company TANGO for sponsoring the on-site transportation to support this community project.
