When Jackie Dawson entered the drawing at the Kids/Teachers/Educators Understanding Deployment Operations (TUDOS & KUDOS) at Dover Air Force Base, little did she know that her family would be the recipient of the Project Thanks: One-Day Organizing Home Makeover 2016! Jackie and her husband, Senior Airman Christopher Dawson, welcomed members of the National Association of Professional Organizers, Greater Philadelphia Chapter (NAPO-GPC) on Veterans Day, November 11, 2016, into their home. NAPO-GPC members Carla Shipman, Sue Frost, Yasmin Goodman, Angela Ficco, Martha Spittal and Denise MacMurtrie felt privileged to volunteer their time and express their gratitude to this representative military family.

The day could have been entitled “Operation Closets” as the team organized four closets including the master, hall and two bedroom closets. All four of the Dawson children were eager to assist. When the three older children realized why this mysterious team of ladies was there, they squealed with delight, “I can’t believe we won!” Even their one-year-old sister helped!

SrA Dawson has served in the Air Force as C5 Crew Chief since 2013. The family just received word they will be relocating to Ramstein Air Force Base, Germany in February, 2017. They expressed gratitude that Project Thanks is their first step in preparing them for their next Air Force assignment!
