Pasadena’s National Charity League Keeps Busy During Pandemic

Siena Jurgensen from Altadena and Katie Walsh from San Marino, both of whom attend Polytechnic School, make sweet potato chew toys for dogs at the Pasadena Humane Society as part of NCL’s outreach efforts.

The Pasadena chapter of the National Charity League has not idled during the pandemic.
The mother-daughter organization has served a wide variety of local communities and charitable agencies.
Between April 1, 2020, and Dec. 31, 2020, the members logged over 7,800 “hands-on” hours for activities ranging from writing gratitude letters to first responders and making masks, providing books to the Boys and Girls Club, baking cupcakes for Friends of Foster Children, and providing meals to Union Station Adult Center, Union Station Family Center and the Ronald McDonald House.
