NAPO-GPC members participated in the ACS Bucks and Montgomery Spring Home Show with a booth to promote our chapter in Warminster, PA. Some of our professional speakers also presented on organizing topics during the ACS Show at the Warminster SMG Sportsplex. Our members shared their expert knowledge on organizing topics with visitors who came to our booths, and with the audience at the live workshops.
For GO (Get Organized) Month this year, NAPO-GPC members participated in three different local home shows. We had booths to promote our chapter at ACS Home Shows in King of Prussia, PA and Pitman, NJ. Some of our professional speakers also presented on organizing topics at the ACS Shows, and the Philadelphia Home Show at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Our members shared their expert knowledge on organizing topics with visitors who came to our booths, and with the audience at the live workshops.
Congratulations to our NAPO-GPC Conference Scholarship recipient, Jen Bowen, pictured here with last year’s winner, Annie Amoon Richard.

A group of 12 NAPO-GPC members volunteered at the Cradles to Crayon’s “Giving Factory” in West Conshohocken. We used our expert organizational skills to sort clothing and other items, in order to prepare them to be distributed into “Kid Packs.” These care packages are provided to children from low-income and homeless families. It was a very cheerful environment, as we were all very connected to the mission of this exceptional non-profit organization. To donate items or volunteer at Cradles to Crayons, check out their website here: http://www.cradlestocrayons.org/philadelphia
NAPO-GPC volunteers returned this year for the WHYY National Public Radio Telethon. We had a wonderful time and filled the room with our enthusiasm while we answered calls and entered pledges from 2:30 – 8:00 pm. Thanks to WHYY, NAPO-GPC received many mentions during the rush hour drive time in PA, DE & NJ.
Once again 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, 2013. Last year’s winner received her make-over just in time for the December holidays.
