This past October Norwood Resource Center experienced a devastating fire, which affected the entire building. Although NRC holds property insurance additional resources are needed to help rebuild so that NRC can continue its efforts to build a better community, to grow and to support the livelihood of greater Birmingham. Funds raised from the Boulevard Blast this year will not only help to continue the NRC mission and allow NRC to improve and extend its services, but it will also help support its recovery from the fire.
