Members of the New Canaan chapter of the National Charity League hosted the national Ticktocker Day at New Canaan High School Nov. 9.

The day featured Kelly Leather, director of events and volunteers for Inspirica, which provides services to the homeless and families in need in lower Fairfield County.

The volunteers donated food items to be included in Inspirica's annual Thanksgiving food donation. They assembled the meal boxes, created a message for recipients and assisted in the packing for transport of the boxes to Inspirica.

Kaster Moving Company, headed by Kevin Kaster, donated 100 boxes and a moving truck for transport of the collected items to Inspirica, which then will distribute more than 300 meals to families who otherwise wouldn't have a Thanksgiving meal.

The volunteers also had the opportunity to meet Katie Tarbox, the author of the bestselling book "A Girl's Life Online," a memoir detailing her account with an Internet predator.

Seven other chapters of National Charity League joined the two New Canaan chapters.
