The smile on a child's face when they receive new clothes is very rewarding. Knowing our testing for "lazy eye" has prevented the child from being blind means the child can face life's challenges much easier. Seeing pride on a senior citizen's face when they give the cap they made to someone in need really means our Senior Friendship program has helped 2 people.

Our group of 270 people helps approximately 20,000 individuals each year in the Greater Sacramento area.

Assistance League of Sacramento changes lives on a daily basis. Over 4500 elementary children go to school each day with the proper clothing and shoes because of our Operation School Bell program. I get a huge sense of pride in knowing that these under privileged children are learning better and attending class more regularly because they are dressed like their peers. When a grateful mother thanks me for the services that we provide, it makes me want to work harder and volunteer more to serve our community.

Becoming an active member of the Assistance League of Sacramento has been one of the best volunteer experiences that I have ever had -- and I've been a community volunteer in both Northern and Southern California for over 40 years. The mission, values and goals of the organization fit my philanthropic nature. It is an all volunteer community service organization spreading love and compassion throughout the greater Sacramento & Yolo County areas through its philanthropic programs.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Operation School Bell, Eyes Right, Kidz on the Block, Scholarship Program, Waste Not, History in a Trunk, Senior Friendship and Bears, and best of all working at the Thrift Shop.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

working with over 200 loving and compassionate people who give of themselves daily to the community.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Since the Assistance league has no paid staff, all volunteers are caring and helpful, and very professional

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Expand their philanthropic programs to help more people in need and purchase a new building to house the Thrift Shop

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week

Great organization. All money stays in the Sacramento area. All volunteers. No paid employees. I feel very comfortable giving to this organization.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the past 37 years as a member and a volunteer.

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

like to see it become more visible to the public.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The friendliness and dedication of the members.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

great to work with.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

clothe more needy children, give more scholarships, make a bigger impact in the Sacramentonarea.

Ways to make it better...

It couldn't have been better.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

lack of visibility in the community.

One thing I'd also say is that...
