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.
Assisteens Give the Gift of Music
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. Assisteens raise money in a variety of ways to fund ongoing Assistance League and Assisteen philanthropic programs that benefit their community. This year, the Assisteens members have supported the Instrumental Music program with their gift of $5,000 which will be used toward the purchase of new instruments. This gift will afford music students in grades 4-6, more opportunity to play the instrument of their choice and will be used by young musicians for years to come. Assisteens have already started their meetings for the 2018-2019 season. Welcome to all who have registered and joined us this year.
