The Lilies of the Valley Chapter, formed in 1994, is one of six chapters of the Young Women’s Christian League, Incorporated, a 501c3 Non-Profit organization, which was founded in Richmond, Virginia in 1959. The League’s motto is “Others Rather Than Self.”
The Lilies of the Valley Chapter’s signature service is awarding scholarships to college students who demonstrate financial need and academic achievement. We also provide meals and financial support to individuals and families experiencing food or clothing shortage, joblessness, homelessness, medical and other challenges. We often partner with other established organizations to serve hot meals, distribute food boxes, and advocate breast cancer awareness.
The Lilies of the Valley Chapter realizes it cannot do everything for everyone, but is devoted to doing something for someone. Each Chapter sister believes that love is the foundation for service and pledges to perform the work that God has committed to her as part of a greater work.
