CHICAGO, May 24, 2016 — For many nonprofits, repair and improvements to facilities can be constrained by a lack of financial resources, manpower and the ability to secure a qualified contractor. To preserve and revitalize low-income homes and communities across the country, Rebuilding Together created Give Back Day, a program that matches corporate sponsors with nonprofit facilities in need and provides a setting in which employees can work together to serve their communities.
As part of this year's Give Back Day, CNA is partnering with the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) and Rebuilding Together Metro Chicago at the DMI Youth Can Community Center in Chicago's Austin neighborhood. The facility improvements will allow Youth Can to continue providing critical services to the youth it serves. The effort is in celebration of National Roofing Week, which takes place June 5-11, to increase awareness of the importance of roofs, and to share the good deeds of the roofing industry.
As you provide the latest news and information, consider including this Give Back Day project benefiting the DMI Youth Can Center in your stories.
