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.
