The Central Bucks chapter welcomed 69 new members this past spring.
The organization currently has 258 members and provides hands-on volunteer service for 19 philanthropic organizations in the community.
“As our membership continues to grow, we are able to create more impact in our community,” said Barbara Horton. “Last year, our members served over 4,500 hours with our philanthropic partners, who are primarily located in the Bucks County area. The members also spent over 5,000 hours training, leading, and mentoring our youth membership (girls grades seventh-12th) ensuring that they have the skills to continue this community impact as they reach adulthood.”
Members are women (called “Patronesses”) and their daughters (called “Ticktockers”), grades seven-12.
Through community service, NCL, Inc. develops socially responsible community leaders and strengthens the mother-daughter relationship.
The traditional Six Year Core Program also includes leadership development and cultural experiences. Mother-daughter teams nationwide are responsible, dedicated, skilled volunteers actively engaged in local communities in 27 states across the country.
To date, there are more than 265 Chapters, two of which are in Pennsylvania.
