One great source of pride in our chapter is our Community Outreach Projects. Every July since 2016 we have done a major organizing makeover. The first three were contest winners and the fourth one was a donation warehouse. In these events NAPO-CT professional organizers and business partners came together and accomplished an amazing transformation in just 6 hours. These outreach projects are terrific opportunities to learn each other’s strengths, which in turn strengthens our chapter. Together we make a big difference in people’s lives and have a lot of fun!
Over the years…
During 2020 & 2021 we were in the midst of the Covid pandemic preventing us from gathering as a group and completing a makeover project. But, we’ll be back…
2018 – Dream Garage Contest
2017 – Set to Sell Contest
2021 – The Undies Project
NAPO-CT Answers the Call
When NAPO-CT members are asked to pitch in and help those less fortunate, we respond! Due to Covid restrictions, we have not held an in-person meeting since February 2020, but that didn’t stop members from taking this year’s outreach project seriously. YES, SERIOUSLY!
Bonnie Arrix, NAPO-CT Secretary and Coordinator for 2021 Summer Outreach Project, delivered our accumulated collection to The Undies Project of Cos Cob, CT.
The total tally was:
|652||gently used/new bras for women and girls|
|280||new briefs for men and boys|
|720||new panties for women and girls|
|13||new pairs of socks as an extra bonus!|
This is what Bonnie passed on to members: “The Undies Project told me that they have NEVER had a group exceed expectations like NAPO-CT did. We pulled in the record for donations! I feel proud as a peacock to be part of such a class act association!”
We are all proud to be members of NAPO-CT and show our true colors as we accept the challenge for a worthy cause: To provide underwear for those in need.
Here are a few comments from our Facebook page:
