National Charity League Ticktockers Deliver a Day of Service on Behalf of 4 Philanthropies

McKinley School, Dream Foundation, Casa Pacifica and BUNS benefit from work of over 50 young volunteers

National Charity League of Santa Barbara hosted a day of community service for more than 50 of its Ticktockers, local girls in the seventh through 12th grades. The workday at McKinley School, 350 Loma Alta Drive, benefited Bunnies Urgently Needing Shelter (BUNS), Casa Pacifica, Dream Foundation and McKinley School itself.

The annual event was organized by the NCL Ticktocker Council and the Ticktocker coordinator Belinda Zola.

“I am honored to work with these young women on the council,” said Zola. “They planned a day of volunteer projects benefiting four of our philanthropies, and the Ticktockers responded with grace, efficiency and cheer!”

The girls worked more than a combined 200 hours making bunny toys for BUNS, creating cards for Dream Foundation dream recipients, sorting clothing items donated to Casa Pacifica, and preparing school projects for McKinley teachers.

Throughout the year NCL Ticktockers have devoted nearly 7,000 hours to the 18 local philanthropies supported by the Santa Barbara Chapter.

National Charity League Inc. is dedicated to fostering mother-daughter relationships through philanthropy, leadership development and cultural experience. The Santa Barbara Chapter includes 225 women and daughters who attend grades seven through 12 in Santa Barbara area schools.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
