Local National Charity League members attend district meeting

Eight women from the Glendale Chapter of National Charity League Inc. recently attended the mother-daughter organization’s Fall District IV Meeting and leadership conference in Yorba Linda.

According to Debbie Cox, president of NCL Glendale Inc., the meeting underscored the importance of social responsibility and volunteerism as practiced by the dozen NCL Chapters in District IV.

In the 2010-11 fiscal year alone, NCL Inc. District IV members, including those from the Glendale Chapter, volunteered a cumulative total of 123,000 hands-on hours with local charities, valued at almost $2.5 million in manpower hours.

The goal of all NCL Glendale efforts and events is to provide chances for moms to work with their daughters to teach event leadership skills, role model compassion and serve those in the local community who need financial or personal, one-on-one help and attention.
