From landscaping to painting to cleaning, employees from the NNSS arrived ready to tackle everything on the to-do list during a community service project last month. For several years, the NNSS has partnered with Rebuilding Together Southern Nevada, a nonprofit organization working to preserve affordable homeownership and revitalize neighborhoods by providing free rehabilitation services to those in need. More than 30 employees pitched in on April 30 to help renovate a Las Vegas community member’s home.

“Thanks to NNSS employees, we have renovated many homes,” said Jennifer Morgan, Principal Communication Specialist at the NNSS. “But it’s not about the number of houses we work on—it’s about the community members’ lives that we impact. At the end of the day, nothing feels better than doing that final walkthrough with the homeowner going over the day’s accomplishments. That’s why we do it: to make a difference in someone’s life.”

Employees and their family and friends volunteer twice per year to renovate homes adopted by the NNSS, a corporate sponsor of Rebuilding Together Southern Nevada. For the latest project, volunteers performed exterior clean-up and renovations, including:
