Our Chapter History
In May of 2008, 28 women met at Spring Mountain Elementary cafeteria in Happy Valley, OR, to start the Sunnyside Chapter of National Charity League, Inc. They needed 28 women and had exactly 28 women in the cafeteria! Most of them didn’t know too much about NCL. However, they did understand that it stood for giving back to others, learning, developing leadership skills, and spending more time with their teenage daughters. These were all values that they shared and they were all willing to give time and talents to help build a new chapter.
The members of this newly-formed Sunnyside Chapter took a risk at committing to something new but quickly saw the rewards of their efforts with the many contributions made to the community and many connections they made among one another.
