Volunteers from NAPO-GPC will be giving some lucky US Military Personnel or Veteran a free one-day, one-room organizing make-over. Entry forms are available here. Contest deadline is Nov. 7th. A winner will be drawn at random and notified on Veteran’s Day, Nov. 11, 2014. Imagine a room makeover just before the holidays!
September is “National Preparedness Month” and members of NAPO-GPC and the Philadelphia Mummers first responders received specialized training by Philadelphia’s Office of Emergency Management. The workshop included crisis planning techniques that NAPO-GPC members will share with their clients and communities.
Many of our NAPO-GPC members attended the NAPO Conference 2014 in Phoenix. Can’t wait to attend LA Conference in 2015!
At this year’s shredding event, NAPO-GPC had a table with handouts including Paper Organizing Tips to help people to eliminate paper clutter. News anchor Tracy Davidson once again organized a spectacular event, and our volunteers assisted people with the process of getting their documents shredded. Locals from the Philadelphia area lined up at the Wells Fargo Center to shred sensitive paperwork and help prevent identity theft.
This year’s winners of our Project Thanks drawing were Ted and Kitty Ernwood of Williamstown, NJ. Ted is a retired major who served three tours of duty in Vietnam. NAPO-GPC volunteers spent a day transforming the Ernwood’s cluttered home office into an optimized space for them to work. A new desk was donated by Joe Wuersch of Abbey Installations, Inc., based in Medford, NJ. The next annual drawing will be held on Veteran’s Day 2014.
