Assisteens Helping Out in the Bargain Box & Music Petting Zoo

Assisteens in Action
As members of the Assistance League of Flintridge “Assisteens” auxiliary, the teens meet monthly and work together on many projects.  They also staff the Bargain Box Thrift Shop one Saturday each month.

In addition to conducting business and working on projects, Assisteens receive informative presentations such as this one on plastics and their effect on the environment that was presented by Assisteen, Melina Tsotras.  She had been studying this subject in connection with her Girl Scout Gold Award.  Also at this meeting was Assistance League of Flintridge member Rose Nielsen, who brought her therapy dog Goldie and shared their experiences helping hospitalized children.  The Assisteens were so inspired by Team Rose & Goldie that in 2020, they voted to support the Amerman Family Foundation dog therapy program at Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles.  Assisteens purchased 137 embroidered, lightweight jackets that were delivered to the hospital for volunteers to wear during their therapy sessions.

“We have a wonderful group of Assisteens,” said Jeanette Viau,  Assistance League of Flintridge member and Assisteens Coordinator.  “They are very enthusiastic and strive to improve the community.”
