Assistance League of North Coast
Rating: 5 stars 1 1 review 151
Issues: Human Services
Location: PO Box 2682 Carlsbad CA 92018 USA
Programs: FOOTSTEPS - Our Footsteps program provides new school shoes to children whose families cannot keep up with growing feet and daily wear and tear.
Through referrals from school principals and counselors, Assistance League North Coast aids children from 33 Oceanside, Vista, and Carlsbad elementary schools and MAAC Project Pre-school sites.
Most Wednesday mornings during the school year, we meet a bus load of kids at a Payless ShoeSource store. Our members team up one on one with each child so they can pick out shoes that fit and that they will be proud to wear to school.
Each child also receives 6 pairs of socks and a health kit. $35,000 is budgeted for 2009-2010. This is our largest project at the present time. We appreciate Payless ShoeSource as a great partner in this project.

Assistance League North Coast has a new program called "I love to read". This program donates books to elementary schools as incentives for children to read. This month the elementary school in Vista, Crestview, got 500 books and over the Thanksgiving week 29 children read the required number of books to get a reward. "The kids were so excited to get a book to take home and read" said the Librarian. What a great program."
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
The hands on approach the Assistance League uses in many of their programs. They don't just give money--they give time, effort and love.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Improve the communities they serve with programs which would focus on education. I think they would make a even bigger impact by using the programs they have now and expanding them. They might also purchase a building for their Thrift Shop
