Community Service

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

NCL, Inc., Pacific Coast Chapter supports a wide range of philanthropies in Huntington Beach and across Orange County. Our philanthropy partners focus on an array of different community needs, from the environment to the arts; from the elderly to special needs populations; and much more. Our members thus have the opportunity to volunteer in a wide range of community service settings.

We ask our members to give 15 hours per year of their time supporting the work of our philanthropy partners; in practice, however, most of our members work well over this amount, with our Chapter contributing over 11,100 community service hours in the past year alone.

NCL-PCC continues to expand its philanthropic outreach by growing its support in 2018 to 24 charitable organizations throughout the community.
