Richard and Becky Gainey recently did volunteer work with the Las Vegas Habitat for Humanity while attending the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) annual convention.
Sponsored by VCI Solutions, the project had the theme of building partnerships for a better community. More than 300 NAB convention attendees and Habitat for Humanity volunteers came together to build a house in the parking lot of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The house was built in sections so it could be easily disassembled and transported from the parking lot to its foundation in Henderson, Nevada, where the future homeowners and Habitat volunteers will complete the home. Richard and Becky Gainey worked on one corner of the house with a team of volunteers and professional builders. Richard is associate professor of communication arts and director of the broadcasting program. Becky is cable manager.
