Members of NAPO-LA, the Los Angeles chapter of the National Association of Professional Organizers, dedicated their time, enthusiasm and organizing talents to help de clutter and organize the arts & crafts room of the City of Santa Monica’s Police Activities League (PAL).  All donations and unnecessary supplies were hauled away for free by Go Junk Free America.  This joint volunteer event prepared PAL for the launch of their artist-in-residence program and has given PAL kids the room to play, grow, create and learn.

“The opportunity to help our friends at PAL was a great experience for both our professional organizer members and corporate associate partner Go Junk Free America,” said Leslie Haber, President of NAPO-LA.  “We enjoyed working with the PAL staff and kids, and each volunteer brought unique talents to organize the space.  We are thrilled the kids now have the space to make art, and look forward to seeing masterpieces from budding Monets and Picassos.”

“We are delighted to have this amazing team of organizing professionals come and bring order to PAL,” said Eula Fritz, PAL Director at City of Santa Monica.  “The organizers created systems and zones to make our operations in the art room much more efficient.  Our staff is devoted to providing these kids with the best experiences possible, and now with an organized arts & crafts room, the kids’ creativity can really soar.”

NAPO-LA members regularly volunteer their time to help other nonprofits and transfer their organizing skills to the people who run these organizations.  NAPO-LA will be hosting weGO, a free event on Jan. 21, 2017 at Plummer Park (7377 Santa Monica Blvd., West Hollywood) to educate and inspire people to get organized and illustrate the benefits it can make in your business, home and life.

NAPO Los Angeles is a non-profit professional organization dedicated to developing, leading and promoting professional organizers and the benefits of better home and business organization. The founding chapter of the National Association of Professional Organizers, NAPO-LA has provided members with a forum for networking, professional development and raising public awareness since 1985.
