My daughter and I have been serving together in our community for 3 years through National Charity League and have found it a rewarding experience. In addition to the philanthropy opportunities we have also gained leadership development and cultural experiences. Since its founding in 1999, the membership has grown to 300 mothers and daughters who have dedicated over 47,000 hours of philanthropic volunteer work in the San Diego North County Inland area. Over 7,500 hours were worked supporting our philanthropies in the past year alone. The NCL Poway Chapter provides service to the community through a variety of philanthropies, ranging from our libraries, The After School Homework Program, the Poway Senior Center to the Humane Society.
