Serving the children of Cherokee County, GA for 80 years

Founded in 1935, the Service League of Cherokee County, GA is the oldest volunteer service organization in Cherokee County.  With its deep roots and rich heritage of caring for children, the League has grown to an organizational size of 100 women, all of whom commit to 10 years of active service and contribute volunteer hours that collectively approximate 10,000 hours per year.  As a not for profit organization, the money we raise through our efforts is directed back into the community to help provide food, clothing, medical and dental care, eyeglasses, scholarships, and much more to identified children in need.
