National  Charity League, INC. Peninsula Chapter – Participate in Operation Homefront

On Sunday, November 8th, 200 the Peninsula Chapter of National Charity League, Inc. gathered moms and Ticktockers at Palos Verdes Intermediate School to help brighten the holidays for military families with Operation Homefront.  Operation Homefront is an organization that provides assistance to military families.  They offer relief during military family crisis and support wounded warriors when they return home.  This was the third year NCL Peninsula participated in this event. Lesley Sklow, chair of the event, requested from the membership to donate new toys and clothing for children ranging in ages from infants to teens.   These gifts were wrapped at an exuberant wrapping party held in the multipurpose room at PVIS.  Over 100 holiday cards and letters were also written to send to our soldiers serving overseas.  The Army ROTC Color Guard from the University of Southern California opened the event along with Class of 2020 Ticktocker, Gracey Thomas, sang the National Anthem. On December 9th, moms and Ticktockers delivered the wrapped gifts to the Naval Armory in Seal Beach for a Gift Giving Party where the members had the pleasure of meeting the families who were receiving the gifts.  The Ticktockers helped children decorate cookies and Class of 2018 mom and professional photographer, Katrin Cooper, took family photos for their holiday cards.  Santa also made an appearance.
