Assistance League Adds the Sparkle
Assistance League of Montgomery County adds the sparkle in the eyes of children, families, seniors, the homeless, the less fortunate and students. . . BECAUSE OF YOU!
BECAUSE OF YOU donors of money and Thrift Shop items, Assistance League is able to clothe students with new school clothes and shoes; provide scholarships to adults working toward certification so they can get better-paying jobs; feed hungry children who need snacks during and after school; host monthly birthday parties for seniors in a nursing home; pass on unsellable Thrift Shop donations to other nonprofits for their clients; distribute kits to assault survivors; give blankets to residents suffering from the cold; educate children about poison substances; distribute booklets for recording health information; and provide handmade dolls to children and Alzheimer’s patients for comfort.
BECAUSE OF YOU shoppers at our Thrift Shop, Assistance League is able to give a little joy to Ronnie, who resides in a local nursing home; to put a smile on the faces of Carlos and Angela who get to shop for new school clothes; to give a low-income apartment resident the one and only Christmas present she will receive at Christmas; to give a handmade doll to a child in the hospital; and to help provide an education for Cristina, who is studying to be a missionary doctor.
BECAUSE OF YOU members, Assistance League changes lives in Montgomery County with each item you sort and tag; with every clothes item you wash and iron before putting it in the Thrift Shop; with every committee meeting and community event you attend; and with every hug you give and prayer you say for our recipients.
