For Immediate Release
The National Association of Concessionaires (NAC) is pleased to announce that its members will be providing an important community service for New Orleans-based soldiers who are on leave or preparing to return to duty. The event will take place on the last day of the 2013 NAC Convention and Trade Show to be held at the Hilton Riverside New Orleans from 8:00 to 10:00 A.M.
Since the last NAC Convention, several members have expressed a desire to incorporate a community service project into the annual gathering. The Association believes it has found just the right event that fits the Association and the Show. In conjunction with Projects with Purpose, a New Orleans-based group that brings volunteers and non-profits together, we have agreed to host a “Snack Packing Event” which will see our NAC volunteers pack up to 500 individual gallon storage bags full of candy, popcorn, etc. The bags will be filled with the many great products that will be seen at the NAC Trade Show, so exhibitors and members are requested to provide extra product to fulfill the need for the local USO.
Details are being worked on right now and more information will be available in the days and weeks ahead. The Association also anticipates having some Venue Tours on Friday morning, including a back of the house tour of the sprawling Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, making the entire experience a community event.
