Since 2004, the CNA Foundation has partnered with Rebuilding Together to help improve the homes and community centers of veterans, elderly, disabled and low-income residents in Chicago’s most challenged neighborhoods. This grant – along with the elbow grease of volunteers from CNA’s Construction CAMs including, thus far, the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA), the Land Improvement Contractors of America (LICA), and the Association of Pool & Spa Professionals (APSP) – will spread the goodwill from the Midwest to a soon-to-be-confirmed community in the Southeast.
