“I am so proud of the way our chapter has come together to serve our community with heart! Many of our mothers and daughters have found their intrinsic passion for philanthropy and service through their experiences this year. I can truly see how these experiences have shaped our girls in multiple ways. I feel confident that our graduating class of 2019 will take their love of service with them in their new pursuits in college and beyond.”said Naidu.
