The Ridgefield Chapter of National Charity League, Inc. (NCL) has announced the third annual awarding of the President’s Volunteer Service Award, a national award that recognizes community service and encourages citizens to live a life of service, to 33 of its members.

As a certifying organization, NCL is able to acknowledge service both within and outside of NCL. The members volunteered in a range of activities including supporting Meals on Wheels, The Ridgefield Playhouse, The Ridgefield Thrift Shop, Founders Hall, and Ann's Place.

A dozen girls received the Presidential Gold Award for contributing over 100 community service hours, eight girls received the Presidential Silver Award for contributing over 75 community service hours, and 13 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 3,000 hours, equal to 125 days or nearly four full months of service.
