WRAL Azalea Celebration and Grant

Each year WRAL-TV 5, MIX 101.5 WRAL-FM and NC Beautiful sponsor the WRAL Azalea Celebration. Through this program, WRAL-TV gives away over 5,000 azaleas to more than 100 non-profits from all over the state of North Carolina.  On 10/5/2019, North Carolina Sorosis picked up 50 one gallon dwarf Encore azaleas.  Thank you for choosing NCS as the 98th recipient of 114 granted these beautiful plants!

North Carolina Sorosis (NCS) is a community service club that is committed to promoting volunteerism, improving our community, and fostering new friendships. North Carolina Sorosis is proud of its many contributions to our community and is dedicated to community improvement through volunteer service.

Our Club is comprised of women from Wilmington and the surrounding area. We are two groups, the Day and Night Departments, bound together for volunteer service as one club. Opportunities for community involvement are organized within six programs related to Arts, Conservation, Education, Home Life, International Outreach, and Public Issues.

In 1938, NCS organized North Carolina Junior Sorosis (NCJS), for women between the ages of 18 and 45. Our club is an affiliate organization of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs, one of the World’s largest and oldest international volunteer service organizations of women. When you become a member of a club you become a member of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs in not only your state but nationally and internationally.

If you are looking for connections to your community, interested in meeting new friends, and ready to have some fun, NCS has it!  Please give us a call at (910) 791-6128 or email us at ncsorosis@gmail.com. We look forward to hearing from you.  Come volunteer with us!
