Community Service Project

NAEP always includes a community service project as part of our annual meeting. This year, we will be preparing 300 personal care kits for the children, adults, seniors and veterans in the greater Reno community. Additionally NAEP will collect coats from conference attendees to donate to a family shelter run by Volunteers of America - Northern California & Northern Reno chapter in Reno. . Coats of all sizes will be appreciated. You may either bring your gently used coats with you to the meeting and drop them off at the NAEP registration desk or ship them to NAEP ahead of time. NAEP will accept your donations here at our national office and we will ship them with our materials ahead of the meeting. For shipping information, please email here.

We are pleased once again to partner with WESCO on this program.
