the NCL Redding Area Chapter!
National Charity League, Inc. (NCL) is a non-profit
national organization of mothers and daughters who join together in
community involvement within local chapters throughout the United
States. Its goal is to foster a sense of community responsibility in
the girls as well as to strengthen the mother-daughter relationship. The
daughters participate in a six-year program of philanthropic work,
educational activities and cultural events.
The NCL was founded in Los Angeles in 1925 as
Charity League" by a group of mothers assisted by their daughters. By
1938, so many
daughters had become involved that they decided to form their own group.
In 1947, these groups
united to become the first mother-daughter charity and took their
present name, National Charity League.
The Redding Area Chapter of the NCL is a young but
organization. Since our founding in 1997, our membership has grown to
over 170 mothers and daughters who have dedicated hours of
philanthropic volunteer work in the Fairfield County area. The NCL
Redding Area Chapter provides service to the community
through a variety of philanthropies, ranging from our libraries, local
senior centers, assisted living centers, community centers,
organizations helping the homeless, organizations serving cancer
patients, a local hospice to a local environmental center/working farm.
