NEW ZIONSVILLE CHAPTER OF NATIONAL CHARITY LEAGUE HAS FORMED
The Zionsville chapter of National Charity League, a nation-wide mother-daughter service organization, officially formed this fall with over 100 members of the Zionsville community.
In addition to participating in national philanthropic initiatives with The Red Cross, Operation Gratitude and The Alzheimer’s Association, the chapter’s inaugural board members have chosen several organizations to support through hands-on volunteer service hours that include Boone County Humane Society, Zionsville Parks and Recreation, Second Helpings, and Boone County Special Olympics. This list of philanthropy partners will continue to grow as the chapter becomes established.
Daughters in 7th through 12th grade, known as Ticktockers, and their mothers, known as Patronesses, will together embark on a core program focused on philanthropy, strengthening mother-daughter relationships, cultural experiences, and leadership opportunities.
NCL now has nearly 290 chapters across the county. The Zionsville Chapter is one of three in the state of Indiana.
Membership is currently open through January 12, 2023 to mothers and daughters (current 6th – 11th graders) who reside in the Zionsville and surrounding area school districts. For more information, please contact the VP of Membership at MembershipZionsville@nclonline.org Non-profit organizations wishing to become philanthropy partners may contact NCLZionsville@nclonline.org via email.
Chapter President, Melody Peake Berg said, “After learning about this organization, I knew it was a great fit for Zionsville and the surrounding communities. NCL provides multiple ways for young women and their mothers to connect while forming life-long friendships with peers and providing much needed support to the community.”
Chapter VP of Ticktockers, Wendy Schrepferman, remarked, “NCL is a way for students to learn valuable leadership skills such as parliamentary procedure and how to serve on a board. Our members give back to the community all year long, not just when they need to fulfill community service hours here and there. We promote volunteerism as a way of life.”
