In keeping with our commitment to social responsibility, the NAPOCares Committee sponsors community outreach programs and annual events to spread NAPO members' unique knowledge of organizing. Programs include community outreach in the host city of the yearly NAPO Conference, facilitating Quantum Leap® training, and much more.
September 1, 2016 -October 31, 2016
#NAPOCaresChallenge starts September 1, 2016. After helping clients eliminate unneeded items from their homes, NAPO members will photograph those items designated for donation and post the photos to social media using the hashtag #NAPOCaresChallenge.
"NAPO members have always been very conscientious about how items are discarded from clients’ spaces,” said Amy Tokos, NAPOCares Committee Chair. “With the NAPOCares Challenge, we are excited to highlight how we help our clients give back to their communities.”
NAPOCares, NAPO's social responsibility committee, invites you to participate. All you need to do is follow the following steps.
- Take a picture of the items that you or a client are donating.
- Post the picture on social media with #NAPOCaresChallenge, and tag the charity.
- Tag another NAPO member, friend, or family member and challenge them to donate to their favorite charity.
The NAPOCares Committee sponsored a collection drive onsite at the 2016 NAPO Conference in Atlanta to benefit a local charity called the Foster Care Support Foundation (FCSF). This was the first NAPOCares event. and it was a huge success. NAPO members brought a large quantity of items to donate and FCSF was very thankful.
