Members of the senior class of the Temecula Valley Chapter of National Charity League Inc. completed their senior project for Temecula’s Jacob’s House earlier this year.
With the help of National Charity League Inc. classes, they made 100 sunshine waiting room/comfort bags for families staying at Jacob’s House who have loved ones in the hospital. The bags contain lap blankets, snacks, small activity books and other comfort items for families to use while spending time in waiting rooms.
The senior class also raised money to beautify an area on the property of Jacob’s House to create a “sunshine corner” for Jacob’s House guests to enjoy.
Katy Hurley and Bella Dominguez are the chapter’s leadership vice presidents.
Each year, the Temecula Valley Chapter’s senior class is required to complete a community service senior leadership project. The purpose of the project is to have the senior class use the skills they acquired over the past six years of participating in National Charity League. The project requires the girls to research, design and present a community service project for the entire chapter’s participation.
National Charity League Inc.’s Temecula Valley Chapter has 216 members and provides hands-on volunteer service for 17 philanthropic organizations in the community. Members are women and their daughters in grades seven through 12.
The traditional six-year core program also includes leadership development and cultural activities. Mother-daughter teams are engaged in local community work in 26 states. There are more than 240 chapters, nine of which are in Riverside and San Bernardino counties.
