Professional Organizers To Dedicate 75 Hours Of Service To Goodwill Columbus

The Ohio chapter of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) will unleash a 75-hour organizing blitz on Goodwill Columbus’s Grandview-area headquarters. The event, to take place January 27-28, is the first of many celebrating the nonprofit’s 75th year in Columbus, Ohio.

“This is a very special time as we celebrate 75 years of building independence, quality of life and work opportunities for individuals with disabilities and other barriers in Franklin County,” said Margie Pizzuti, President and CEO of Goodwill Columbus. “We appreciate the folks at NAPO for providing this service.”

January is “Get Organized,” or “GO” Month, when professional organizers encourage the public to kick off the New Year by organizing their home and workplace. NAPO members say they will apply their skills to make sure Goodwill’s maintenance room is organized for efficiency and productivity.

“We’re supporters of the work Goodwill Columbus does in the community and we’re happy to give back by providing them with a logically organized space,” said Chapter President Cathy VanVolkenburg. “We’ll be streamlining and categorizing the maintenance room for better efficiency.”

In addition to getting a fresh new look, the maintenance room will benefit from the addition of brand new shelving units, donated by the Container Store.
