Assisteens is an auxiliary of Assistance League of Flintridge, a program that encourages and provides volunteer opportunities for young people in Grades 7 through 12. The goals are to develop a sense of both community and personal responsibility, self-reliance, public speaking and leadership skills. The group meets on one Sunday a month during the school year with opportunities on other days as they come up. Assisteens also staff the Bargain Box Thrift Shop, one Saturday per month. Assisteens are encouraged to look toward their community and be inspired about how they can make a difference. Registration for the 2019-2020 season of Assisteens began on Saturday, April 27th at 12 Noon. If you missed it, contact the Programs Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 818-790-2211 to be placed on a Waiting List.

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. The committee members are already looking toward their next project, providing books to students during ACTION! WEEK, a national event held by Assistance League chapters all over the country.
