Over 100 mother and daughter volunteers gathered together at the Community Center of Christ’s Home for Children to work on numerous projects in support of several of the chapter’s philanthropy partners.
During the course of the day, volunteers assembled 45 sock rolls, including personal hygiene items, for Worthwhile Wear; compiled 2000 folders for Doylestown Hospital; prepared 178 meals for Aid for Friends; created 25 fabric door wreaths and made greeting cards for residents at Wesley Enhanced Living; made 25 tutus for the For Pete’s Sake Color Run; prepared 40 senior gift bags for Bucks County Opportunity Council’s monthly food delivery program; and played games and crafts with children at Christ’s Home.
Additionally, the chapter collected four boxes of children’s books to donate to Cold Spring Elementary School.
Members wore red and enjoyed heart-healthy games and snacks, and learned CPR to help raise awareness for women’s heart health.
“This annual event is primarily planned and implemented by our daughters. It is a highlight event for our chapter’s members who value this opportunity to support our community,” said Judi Cenci, NCL, Inc., Central Bucks Chapter Co-Vice President Ticktockers.
“It’s great to have the opportunity to give back to our community,” said Allison Welch, 18, a member of the NCL Central Bucks Chapter’s class of 2019. “My classmates and I enjoyed taking charge and planning this event. It’s a fun way to spend time together all while making a difference in the lives of others.”
