It is with great joy that we honor Claudia Staley for establishing Chicktime Columbia and building such a strong community of volunteers to serve the local children of Columbia recovering from abuse and/or neglect. When I look back over the chapter’s website, I am humbled by the work accomplished as a team under Claudia’s leadership.

 

Claudia is being transferred out of the area with her job and we are in desperate need of a new managing leader for Chicktime Columbia. Until someone emerges to lead, unfortunately there will be no more organized activities. We encourage you to continue volunteering on your own with the charities and we also encourage you to consider chapter leadership.
