Day of Service
St. Bernard Parish Project
Thursday, March 20, 2014 12:30PM-4:30PM
Each year, NCA gives back to its Convention host city with a public service project dedicated to helping meet the special needs of the community. For 2014, the NCA Day of Service will bring industry volunteers to New Orleans’ St. Bernard Parish, one of the districts hardest hit by Hurricane Katrina.
Volunteers will roll up their sleeves to help rebuild some of the 130 homes still in need of assistance, performing tasks including drywall installation, spackling, laying floors, hanging doors and painting. Teams of 10 to 15 volunteers will work together in individual homes in the parish, where the rebuilding need remains great. All will work hard, but no task will exceed individual capabilities or limitations.
The efforts are being coordinated through the St. Bernard Parish Project, a group working to bring people back into their homes after natural disasters. The group also has projects underway in New York City’s Rockaways peninsula and Staten Island to help residents recover from the ravages of Hurricane Sandy.NCA has already engaged in helping New Orleans recover from Hurricane Katrina. The 2011 NCA Day of Service volunteers helped restore devastated City Park by planting 100 new trees donated by NCA to the city.
Only registered Convention attendees may participate. We are limited to approximately 90 volunteers.
