Imagine a group that takes a professional yet fun approach to volunteerism.
A group that understands the need to be involved in your community and the fulfillment and joy that brings. A group that promotes friendship and personal development. A group that gives its members a variety of volunteer opportunities that, most often, focus on women’s and children’s issues. A group that understands the demands of family and work commitments, offering volunteer opportunities that can fit into any busy schedule. What you’ve just imagined is a real and thriving group of dynamic women. Welcome to the Chapel Hill Service League!
For more than 70 years, we have been sharing our gifts with the people of Chapel Hill and Carrboro (and the surrounding area) by providing hands-on service to a wide range of worthwhile community projects all while promoting friendship and personal growth among our diverse and talented members. We donate more than 6,000 woman-hours of volunteer time each year – and we have a great time doing it!
We’re dedicated to making a difference in our community – and we’re looking for new members. In fact, our success is highly dependent on the new women who join each year as they infuse the League with fresh ideas, bring valuable life and work experience, and share in our energetic volunteer efforts.
Membership is open to women of all ages and interests.
We work with several local organizations such as:
- Ronald McDonald House
- Dress for Success
- SECU Family House
- Caring House
- NC Children's Promise
- UNC Horizons
And we produce two key annual events:
- Our main fundraising effort, the Southern Village 5k and Family Fun Run
- Our signature annual volunteer event, Christmas House where we, with the help of many gracious members of the community, provide a brighter holiday for more than 800 local children.
