Mother and daughter volunteers needed for Charity League

The Foothill Chapter of the National Charity League (NCL) is in the midst of its annual membership drive, seeking mothers and daughters who enjoy volunteering and making a difference in their communities.

To be considered for NCL membership beginning with the 2014-15 year, women must have a daughter entering seventh, eighth or ninth grades in the fall of 2014. The Foothill Chapter is comprised of girls in grades 7-12 and their mothers from Claremont, Upland, La Verne, San Dimas, Glendora, Chino, Chino Hills, Rancho Cucamonga, Ontario, Montclair and Pomona.

Local NCL members volunteer their time with 17 area and national charities, including American Cancer Society, Ability First, Inland Valley Hope Partners and Habitat for Humanity. The chapter also annually hosts a Thanksgiving feast for Foothill Family Shelter residents, donates holiday toys to numerous charities and provides college scholarships to deserving high school seniors with funds raised from NCL’s yearly poinsettia sale.

Anyone who might be interested in joining the philanthropic organization is encouraged to contact the Foothill Chapter as soon as possible. For more information, send inquiries to jajualka@aol.com.
