Giving Back to the Community
Kansas City NARI Gives Back With Community Service Projects
Kansas City NARI believes in giving back to the community in which members live and work. For over 25 years, Kansas City NARI has helped with such projects as building wheelchair ramps for those homeowners who can’t afford to modify their home or remodeling a commercial building that houses a local charity.
In 2016 and 2017, over a 10-month renovation schedule, Kansas City NARI partnered with Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City to remodel a 1912, 3-story home at 3023 Highland in the Mt. Hope neighborhood. This project involved hundreds of NARI members who donated materials, labor and cash to remodel the home for a single mother and her three children. This project kicked off in April 2016 and was completed in February 2017.
In 2019, Kansas City NARI completed the 12 Days of Service. One Saturday each month NARI members came together to help charitable organizations including Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City, KC Pet Project, Faith Works and Habitat ReStore.
When Kansas City NARI hosts community service work days where remodeling projects are completed, oftentimes “competitors” work side by side for the greater good of the community. NARI members have consistently donated 100% of the needed building materials, labor and cash to complete every community service project ever undertaken.
