In response to this year’s hurricanes and wildfires, NAA supporting Hatching Hope to provide care kits for apartment residents displaced from their homes by such disasters. With support from the NAA National Suppliers Council and NextGen Committee, NAA will be providing supplies such as toiletries, towels and inflatable mattresses. Onsite at CampusConnex, you can join peers in putting the care kits together. It’s a great chance to network while doing some good—and you won’t even have to leave the resort.
