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. (NCL). We needed 28 women to charter our chapter and we had exactly 28 women in the cafeteria! Most of us didn’t really know much about NCL. However, we did understand that it stood for giving back to others, learning, developing leadership skills, and spending more time with our teenage daughters. These were all values that we shared and we were willing to give time and talents to help build a new chapter.
As charter members of the Sunnyside Chapter we took a risk at committing to something new, but we soon found out the risk would pay off and pay forward into our community.
