What’s Happening at the Bargain Box
ALFies Celebrate Philanthropic Programs at the Phil Faire
During a recent meeting, Assistance League of Flintridge members had the opportunity to learn more about philanthropic programs at the first annual “Phil Faire.” Each of the chairmen representing Drama, Instrumental Music, Summer School, Retired Service Volunteers, Operation School Bell, Community Outreach and Assisteens with their committees reached out to attendees and demonstrated what they do in their positions during the year. Members were able to sign-up right away for the jobs that appealed to them in addition to volunteering for shifts in the Bargain Box Thrift Shop.
ALF Provides Special Gifts Through Community Outreach
You may have seen the Assistance League of Flintridge, Community Outreach ad hoc committee shopping at our new Target store in December. Through a generous donation made by Target and funds from sales in the Bargain Box Thrift Shop, the volunteers were able to provide toys for 42 students in foster care in Sunland-Tujunga. The whole team got behind the project, wrapping the gifts and delivering them in Bargain Box bags. In addition, the committee recently purchased three computers and donated them to Door of Hope, a facility in Pasadena that provides services for homeless families. In February, Community Outreach provided books to students during ACTION! WEEK, a national event held by Assistance League chapters all over the country.
