I have been a member for 5 years and love working for this organization. We are all volunteers working everyday to make a difference in the lives of the children and their families in our community. We have a Thrift Shop that helps provide funds for our many philanthropic programs which include Operation School Bell, Assistance League's Closets in elementary schools, Bears provided to various agencies for children in crisis, Layette program to name a few.

I have been a member of Assistance League of Las Vegas for 8 years now. We are 100 % volunteers with NO PAID STAFF. All donations go 100% to help children in need in the Las Vegas Valley. Last year Operation School Bell, our signature program, was able to help over 8000 children in need of school clothing. We are helping to make successful young adults out of these school children. When you don't have to worry about what you are wearing to school you can concentrate on your studies and succeed in school then succeed in LIFE !!!!! What a great feeling it is to be making a difference in the world we live in.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Nothing...... This organization runs like a well oiled machine.

Assistance League Las Vegas is the best non-profit organization there is. Everyone is a volunteer. No one gets a paycheck so ALL the monies raised goes directly back into the Las Vegas Valley. Our largest program is Operation School Bell. We clothe under privileged and homeless children in the Clark County School District. Every year our numbers grow -- last year we clothed over 8000 children. If someone is looking for a place to donate they don't need to look any further...... Assistance League Las Vegas will use their donation for the good of Las Vegas !

This is my 9th year volunteering - I have been in many organizations through the years but ALLV is exceptional - Every volunteer is there to help either through the thrift store or School Bell program but the most fun is being a KIDS ON THE BLOCK puppeteer - we go to many schools and perform shows teaching the audience that disabilities just make us different but really we are all the same - our Bullying skits are very relevant in today's world (unfortunately) - KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!

What an honor it is to serve the membership of Assistance League of Las Vegas! Not a day goes by that I am not thankful for the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our membership, donors, agencies, community volunteers and the children we serve. We are making a difference bringing hope and encouragement continually. We offer the ability for others to enhance their lives in many satisfying ways. We are proud to be housed in a Reynolds Foundation building that provides an inviting environment to work and to accomplish our goals in fulfilling our mission to provide goods and services to children in need. We welcome others who would like to learn more about us or even become a member or a donor. Assistance League of Las Vegas is an amazing place where last year members gave 40,000 hours of time. That is truly amazing!

Assistance League of Las Vegas is an amazing non-profit organization that provides goods and services to children in need by members who are not paid, who offer their helping hands over and over again to benefit others. The rewards for serving with Assistance League of Las Vegas come back two-fold again and again. Members not only serve others, but have the opportunity to further develop their own skills and create new interests with the help and encouragement of other members. I am so proud to be a member who welcomes children who come to us for new clothing and other items. I am proud to be a puppeteer who preforms a skit about blindness to educate third grade students about this disability. I am proud to help facilitate the ongoing operation of Assistance League of Las Vegas. I would encourage everyone who desires to help others to take a look at joining us!

I have worked as a member with the amazing women of Assistance League since 1990 . I am so gratified at how hard members and volunteers work. What a wonderful group of people and how much we are able to accomplish to enhance the lives of children and their families. Whether one works with Operation School Bell, clothing needy children, the Thrift Store, selling donations of items from our friends in the community to help pay the bills, or any of the other branches of ALLV, our all volunteer membership excells at going the extra mile to help those who are in need of our services. I am so proud to be a part of this wonderful organization!

Assistance League of Las Vegas has many dedicated volunteers who truly make a difference for children. Not only do they provide clothing for school children in need, they do puppet shows about difficult topics lake bullying and abuse, provide bears to traumatized children, layettes for needy newborns and memory boxes for parents of babies that do not survive( this one still makes me cry).
you will find ladies of many different backgrounds working side by side. There are so many different things to do that almost every one can find a fun and satisfying niche. Mine is the thrift shop and helping run the building since we have no hired managers. I have been at it for 16 years and plan to make more than 20 years.

This is my 13th year as a volunteer in the Assistance League. I have enjoyed helping to raise money in the Thrift Shop for the children in the community that we serve. Delivering bears to the Rape Crisis Center I have heard heart-breaking stories where our bears have made a difference, and delivering clothes to the Assistance League Closet at Roundy School, an at-risk school, to help out children in emergency situations has been very gratifying. Our children have many needs and I am proud to help in my small way to make their burden easier.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a larger facility to handle all our donations and storage.

The care given to each child is unbelievable. This organization and the volunteers truly care about the children they serve. Thanks to ALLV for their community service.

We've had children come through that have share their toothbrush with other family members and were glad to get one for themselves.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

More publicity to let the community know them and their good deeds.

Assistance League is a truly great organization. Although we may be small in numbers, we are mighty in service! Not only are we helping so many children, as well as families, we are also helping ourselves to be better people. There is nothing like the great feeling of putting a smile on someone's face, or even watching another volunteer smile because of what she/he has just done. To top it all off, the lasting friendships developed through volunteering with Assistance League Las Vegas is the best.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

More members!
