Get Organized! Month - January

Previously called GO Week, NAPO initiated this now month-long event in 1991. Each year during GO Month, NAPO chapters and individual members embark on major events to bring publicity to the organizing industry.

During Get Organized (GO) Month, NAPO’s chapters and members hold public events throughout the country, offering de-cluttering tips and filing methods. Past events include reuse-and-recycle programs, organizing services to select organizations, shred-a-thons, seminars, school outreaches, and contests. Programming takes place in local libraries, bookstores, and community centers nationwide. The month-long initiative aims to raise awareness of the benefits of getting organized and serves as a way for NAPO chapters to give back to their communities.

Current GO Month Events – 2016

Founded in 1974, Guest House is a charity that helps Northern Virginia women make successful transitions from incarceration back into community.  They address the root causes of the vicious cycle of crime, giving clients the most effective help so that they do not re-offend.
On January 30th, 2016, NAPO-WDC will organize the donations that come into Guest House (largely clothes) for the residents. We will organize shelves and bins where the clothes and their donations are kept. We will also be helping Guest House to organize a process for donation intake and distribution.
