PELLA, Iowa, Jan. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Events across the U.S. and Canada in 2010 will help those in the design, building and remodeling industries build their business skills and help feed the hungry.
U.S. and Canadian sports venues will spring into action Feb. 2 through May 13 as The Pro Expo presented by Pella takes place in 30 cities. During the free events, attendees can obtain continuing education credits, learn about the latest products, services and tips to help build their business and support local food banks in partnership with The Salvation Army.
"Pella is known for providing outstanding windows, doors and service, and these events are intended to provide design, building and remodeling industry professionals with the tools they need to help grow their business in this challenging economy," said Pella Corporation Trade Segment Manager Jarred Roy.
The events will also offer those in need. "We recognize that it's been a tough year for many people economically, and that's why we're partnering with The Salvation Army and asking attendees to donate non-perishable food items to be collected at each event," Roy said. "We're expecting an 'army' of attendees and we hope that together we can help secure plenty of food to be donated to local food banks through The Salvation Army to help feed the respective area's hungry," he said.
