Today features the NBA Cares All-Star Community Caravan, a collection of community service events that began Monday.

With 100 percent participation, NBA members are building playgrounds, community centers and homes in New Orleans and surrounding areas.

Lt. Gov. Mitch Landrieu said in a recent interview that for many, the recovery of New Orleans has become about the future of America, not just the future of one city.

Today's Day of Service, the centerpiece of the NBA's work in the area, will include more than 2,500 people affiliated with the All-Star festivities working at one of 10 project sites. It is a single-day event with a magnitude that the NBA said is unprecedented.

"It's a lot different from a team coming in and doing a Habitat for Humanity for the weekend," Landrieu said.
