Networking Opportunities and Giving Back

Supporting Habitat for Humanity

In 2019 NPF, The Berkshire Company and volunteers spent the day supporting Habitat for Humanity in the Indianapolis area, and it’s on again in 2022 – Phoenix! 

NPF attendees have the opportunity to give back by volunteering time and service. You don’t have to be a carpenter, the only prerequisite is the desire to help others. Simply volunteer by pre-registering online when you register for the NPF.

Thanks to The Berkshire Company and volunteers in 2019. Together we have successfully helped construct a home for a deserving family who could not otherwise find affordable options. Let’s do it again in Phoenix! 

Fees: There is a $25 non-refundable fee to participate in this giving event. All fees collected will be donated to the Habitat for Humanity. Round-trip transportation and lunch will be provided by the NPF. Sponsored by: The Berkshire Company
