Community Service

Each NCL, Inc. chapter promotes social awareness by considering the local community’s needs and selecting appropriate nonprofit organizations to serve. Each chapter then supports its philanthropic service partners through different volunteer activities.

Stanford Hills Chapter works with 35 philanthropies which we support by our participation in the local community and by including them in our annual Philanthropy Fair.
