National Charity League, Inc., Conejo Valley Chapter’s Day of Giving
This year, thanks to the National Charity League, Inc., (NCL) Conejo Valley Chapter, you can get a jump on your holiday shopping while contributing to a good cause. The NCL Day of Giving holiday shopping event takes place Thursday, Oct. 13 at the Agoura Hills Recreation and Event Center, 29900 Ladyface Court in Agoura Hills, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The Day of Giving event features more than 20 chic boutique vendors offering a variety of items sure to delight everyone on your list. A popular food truck will also be onsite to nourish hungry shoppers. Funds from this event are used to support scholarships for local young women graduating from high school, as well as NCL charities.
“Day of Giving is our Chapter’s biggest annual fundraiser, with proceeds enabling us to provide college scholarships to girls in our community who participate in community service but who are not members of our organization,” says Chapter President Kerry Rider. “We are proud to say that we support each of our local Conejo Valley high schools and are able to reward a diverse group of girls with these scholarships each year.”
In addition to the annual high school scholarships, the National Charity League, Inc. Conejo Valley Chapter serves 23 local philanthropies, including the Boys and Girls Club, Cancer Support Community, Casa Pacifica and Many Mansions, Inc.
Founded in 1970 with 15 Patronesses (mothers) and 16 Ticktockers (daughters), NCL’s Conejo Valley Chapter is part of the organization’s 200+ regional chapters nationwide. With the mission to “foster mother- daughter relationships in a philanthropic organization committed to community service, leadership development and cultural experiences,” the National Charity League, Inc. comprises mothers and daughters (in Grades 7-12) working together to serve the community.
Conejo Valley Chapter’s Patronesses and Ticktockers spend over 10,000 hours serving the local community each year. Along with its annual Day of Giving fundraiser, the Conejo Valley Chapter raises charitable funds through owning and operating the Fibber McGee’s Thrift Store staffed by volunteers from the chapter in Thousand Oaks.
The nonprofit organization’s purpose is to foster a sense of community responsibility in the girls as well as to strengthen the mother- daughter relationship through participation in philanthropy, leadership activities and cultural events.
