National Day of Service: 2021

The NCCS National Day of Service is the time when all of our chapters spend time with their members and volunteers to make a difference in their community. This year our chapters are working together during the same week and participating in a book drive. Our goals are to have an effective local impact and unified national impact to advance childhood literacy by collecting as many books as possible in one week.

This year’s theme is: "Fostering a Love of Reading – Together"

The dates of October 25 – October 31, 2021 are chosen to honor and celebrate the November 2nd birth of our founder, Mary Virginia Merrick.

Our previous themes have been: 2016 – “Layettes of Love” 2017 – “Make a Difference: Read to Me” 2018 – “Make a Difference: Read to Me” 2019 – “Read to Me: Inspire Me to Learn"
