I joined Assistance League Diablo Valley 10 years ago. It has been one of the most rewarding and educational experiences of my adult life. 400 chapter members work tirelessly to enhance the lives of the citizens in the communities served by the chapter. Since joining, I have volunteered countless hours on both the local and national level. Assistance League of Diablo Valley provides school uniforms and clothing, reads to second graders, listens to elementary school children read to volunteers, entertains residents at senior livings centers, tests the hearing of pre-school children, performs educational puppet shows to elementary school children, provides food boxes to low income workers, awards scholarships, makes daily phone calls to homebound seniors, funds expenses for foster youth during their senior year of high school along with other programs. The chapter raises all funds to cover expenses for the programs from proceeds for Assistance League of Diablo Valley Wayside Inn Thrift Shop in Lafayette, member donations, grants and the donations of local citizens. We welcome your time, talent and treasure.

I joined the Assistance League last December and have never been so impressed by this amazing group of women. The members raise funds primarily by the operation of the Wayside Inn Thrift Shop in Lafayette and use them to benefit the residents of the Diablo Valley area - from children to seniors. The members raised about $785,000 in fiscal year 2011-2012 to return to the community. The largest program, Operation School Bell, provided new clothes and shoes for 3,697 elementary schoolchildren. Pretty awesome, don't you think?
