VCI Solutions, a provider of software solutions for broadcast and cable, is sponsoring the building of a house in the silver lot of the Las Vegas Convention Center during the 2010 NAB Show. VCI Solutions has partnered with NAB and Habitat for Humanity Las Vegas to frame a house during the show. The project is titled “The Build 2010 House Project.”
Starting Sunday, 4/11, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in building the house. Volunteers will continue to build through Wednesday, 4/14, when a joint ribbon cutting ceremony with the three organizations and the designated family takes place. Info on volunteering and donating can be found on the VCI Solutions website: www.vcisolutions.com/build2010.
The standard-sized Habitat for Humanity house will be moved after the show to a pre-poured foundation so that it can be finished out and sold to a working family that will reside in the home.
Said Deanna Kennedy, Director of Marketing Communications for VCI Solutions: “We are thrilled to be partnering with NAB and Habitat for Humanity Las Vegas for the ‘Build 2010 House Project.’ As a company, we are committed to building partnerships for a better community. We do this both through our company volunteer efforts and our commitment to customers. Our customers in broadcast and cable are building better communities on a daily basis with their public service efforts. This is a way for us to showcase that.”
