Tools and the Power to use them.

Save the date! Our annual fundraiser has a new day and location: This year, instead of celebrating on “hump day,” we’re calling it Stump Day and holding it on Thursday, September 18th, from 6pm to 10pm, at Salvage Works, located at 2030 N. Willis Blvd. We’ll have live music, catered food, a raffle and a silent auction. Nopo folks agree that Salvage Works is the best place bar none to hold a party. Come on out and join us!

There’s a suggested donation, but volunteers get in free–and get to feel good about helping out. More importantly, we need you! See details below the flier and/or contact us at
Come join us at our annual fundraiser.

We need LOTS of volunteers for our fundraiser.  This year we are selling and serving food so we need food handlers and folks with liquor certs to come aid us in our fundraiser.   These are short shifts which will give you time to enjoy the evening and help us throw a great party!!  Thank you in advance.   NPTL Board
