Community Service

Each NCL, Inc. Chapter promotes social awareness by considering the local community’s needs and selecting appropriate non-profit organizations to serve.  Each Chapter then supports its philanthropic service partners through different volunteer activities.

Our Chapter does not fundraise, and instead has chosen to focus on “hands-on” work for our philanthropies. This is the major difference between the Peninsula Chapter and the Palos Verdes Chapter. Volunteering is a great way to get to know our community and the terrific organizations supporting it. Patronesses serve as liaisons to each organization to identify service opportunities. We continually seek new organizations that might be a good fit with our Chapter. Some of the philanthropies we currently support are:
• AAMDSIF (Aplastic Anemia & MDS) Walk LA
• American Heart Association, Los Angeles
