TEMECULA – The summer has been an unusual one due to COVID-19; however, that hasn’t stopped Ticktockers and Patronesses of National Charity League Inc., Temecula Valley Chapter, from volunteering around the community.

Ticktocker classes got creative and did as much philanthropy work as they could at their monthly meetings, including the upcoming “One Million People Moving” walk benefiting the American Heart Association. Everyone is welcome to participate, walking alone or mothers and daughters can walk together. During the walk, a podcast with heart facts and more will be available to listen to that will be created by some of our chapter Ticktockers.

Teams of mothers and daughters served at Community Mission of Hope, Aug. 26, working at a virtual farm stand for the Outreach Farm Project. Some teams delivered prepaid produce to customers’ doorsteps in the Temecula and Murrieta areas and some teams ran had the Farm Stand Pick Up line at Rancho Community Church. Check out hashtag #outreachfarmproject for more information.

In partnership with the Murrieta Senior Center, Ticktockers made hand-tied blankets and facemasks, Aug. 10, including Ticktockers Gracelyn Howell, Kimberly and Faith Legg and Cloie Lagardere and more.

As the service nonprofit looks toward the holidays, the Ticktockers and Patronesses plan to continue serving community. The NCL Temecula Chapter homepage has a list created by Laura Page, vice president of communications, of the “At-Home Philanthropy” projects and volunteering events that are available.
