FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) January GO (Get Organized) Month is well under way. Today, NAPO Members Bea Helft (Bea Helft Organizing), Linda Goldfarb (Organized Solutions), Maxine Dangler (RXMax), Nicole Chamblin (Organized Visions), Alix Lieberman (Organizing With Alix), and Jennifer Ryan (Create New Order) re-organized the sheet music for the Schreiber High School in Port Washington, NY.
Bea Helft brought this project to the attention of the study group Professional Organizers of Long Island (POLI), of which these Professional Organizers are also members, when they were considering what they would accomplish for the community for NAPO’s “GO Month”.
Mr. Brenner, Director of the high School Concert Band and Head of the Music Department, also had students help in the process. “This was a necessary and much needed project here at Schreiber, and these women are a blessing. In a few hours, they re-organized the sheet music, cataloged it, and re-filed it in repaired or replaced covers,” said Mr. Brenner. Superintendent Dr. Geoffrey Gordon stopped by to thank the organizers for their much-needed hard work stating, “There will be many happy music teachers here at Schreiber with this successful effort.”
Each year, NAPO members choose to complete a project in January for GO Month that benefits the community free of charge. It is the mission of all members of POLI to bring their organizing skills to schools and organizations that need to bring order to some part of their operation. If you have a project that you know needs to be completed and that will benefit a Long Island School or Organization, you can contact Jennifer Ryan of Create New Order at 631.979.9530 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Once your information is received, it will be provided to the Professional Organizers of Long Island for consideration.

Partnering for ‘Success’
HICKSVILLE, NEW YORK Lifestyle News
(PRLEAP.COM) — Local members of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) recently pooled their talents to once again assist Ingrid Fray, Founder and Executive Director of Dress for Success Nassau County, a nonprofit organization that helps low-income women by providing business attire and job preparedness programs.301 W. Old Country Road, Hicksville, NY 11801. For more information or to make a donation, please call 516-873-5687.
For National Get Organized Month (GO Month), NAPO’s Professional Organizers of Long Island (POLI) helped Ms. Fray to organize the donations she received at her space in Hempstead - a space that had been provided to her by the Family & Children’s Association. However, when the association expanded its program and needed more room, Ms. Fray had to move.
Fortunately, the New York State Department of Labor stepped in, donating the space Dress for Success Nassau County now occupies in their Hicksville location. Hoping to make accessing items as easy at this location as it had been in Hempstead, Ms. Fray called POLI.
Professional Organizers Marguerite Barone, Linda Goldfarb, Alix Lieberman and Carla Mazzuchelli set about sorting and storing the donated suits, career separates, shoes, handbags, and other accessories that will be provided to women in need of assistance.
“Dress for Success Nassau County suits over 400 women a year,” according to Ms. Fray. “Organization is the key to a successful program and NAPO has helped us reach the next level. Now, when a woman walks through our doors we are truly prepared. All of the donated suits have been coordinated by size and color and [our storage space] looks like you just stepped into a department store. We hope to continue our partnership with NAPO going forward with regard to our future expansion plans.”
Dress for Success Nassau County is located at the Hicksville Career Center, New York State Department of Labor,
