The funds allocated to be used for IACP 2021 will be donated to Habitat for Humanity.
Byron Center, MI — Sept. 16, 2021 — Pro-Vision Video Systems, a leader in mobile video solutions, is donating the funds they had planned to spend at a Law Enforcement Expo in New Orleans to Habitat for Humanity. The event, the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), is the largest law enforcement exposition in North America. It was scheduled to take place September 11-14 in New Orleans, Louisiana, but was canceled due to Hurricane Ida. We invite and encourage other exhibitors who had planned on attending to donate your earmarked funds for this event to Habitat for Humanity or a charity of their choice. Together, we can make a difference and help New Orleans get back on their feet.
“Our hearts go out to those in Louisiana and other states affected by Ida during this difficult time. Since we are unable to attend IACP in person this year, we have elected to donate our expenses to the New Orleans Habitat for Humanity to assist the cleanup and rebuilding for those hit hardest by Hurricane Ida. We encourage other exhibitors to consider this or other worthy causes that help those affected by the Hurricane.”
About Habitat for Humanity New Orleans
New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity (NOAHH) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, incorporated in 1983 as an independent affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI). Since its inception, NOAHH has been working in partnership with hard working, low-income families in New Orleans to build and finance new, safe, affordable homes.
The program makes home-ownership possible for families who are unable to qualify for traditional home loans but have a stable job, good or no credit, and the willingness to contribute 350 hours of sweat equity to the building of Habitat homes. New Orleans continues to rebuild housing that was destroyed by the devastating flooding of Hurricane Katrina.
NOAHH has become a beacon of hope in this rebuilding process by recruiting and deploying tens of thousands of volunteers to construct new homes in damaged, blighted neighborhoods. With the support of our volunteers, donors, and partners across the country and even the world, NOAHH’s home building capacity has increased annually since 2005.
New Orleans is a city with historically low rates of home-ownership and high levels of poverty, yet it is a place of resiliency, hope, and cultural vibrancy. With a spirit of renewal, NOAHH is rising to the challenges presented by a substandard housing stock and is helping many to realize their dream of home-ownership.
