The Ridgefield Chapter of National Charity League, Inc., is pleased to announce the second annual awarding of the President’s Volunteer Service Award, a national award that recognizes community service, to 16 of its members. As a certifying organization NCL is able to acknowledge service both within and outside of NCL. This year, activities ranged from volunteer camp counseling and working with animals to volunteering for religious and international organizations.

Eight girls received the Presidential Gold Award for contributing over 100 community service hours, five girls received the Presidential Silver Award for contributing over 75 community service hours, and three Presidential Bronze Awards were given in recognition of over 50 community service hours. The combined number of hours for the group (toward activities inside and outside of NCL) is 2,090 hours, equal to 87 days or nearly 3 full months of service!
