Organizing for a good cause

Last month, I was fortunate to be part of a group of 12 organizers from the Seattle chapter of NAPO who volunteered organizing services for the Puget Sound Area USO at their SeaTac Center. This Center provides the “comforts of home” and traveling assistance for military members and their families with a full nursery, children’s games, books, and toys; sleeping facilities, showers, free snack bar, comprehensive travel information and assistance, and a lounge area and library.

It was a way for all of us to give back and show support for our troops. The work of the USO Puget Sound relies on volunteer efforts to fill a 24-hour, Monday through Sunday schedule. For two days, we focused on organizing their storage rooms, laundry room, and business offices. It was extremely rewarding to give back to this organization, and it was especially memorable because the event occurred in time for Patriot Day, which honors those who were lost on 9/11.
