I was recently in the United Way Bay Area building for a meeting and noticed the Assistance League's Operation School Bell was in full force on the first floor! I stepped in (I am a school district administrator) and observed the number of volunteers outfitting little ones for the school year. But what truly moved me was not the number of workers, but the tender care and attention each was giving to their student through the fitting process. I left feeling so blessed for this organization and its heart - and how they ensure each child has what they need to 'blend in' with their classmates and, ultimately, a better chance at being successful in school.

This is a wonderful charity with caring and professional people. I work for a school district in the community that this organization services. The majority of the students that I work with are either low income or homeless. Whenever I need something for one of our kids, I always call on this charity. Their response has always been very positive and very prompt. It seems that their motto is "to go beyond the call of duty" as they always provide, when possible, more then the original request. I cannot express how appreciative I am that this charity exists and I hope that they will continue to thrive.

Assistance League of the Bay Area has certainly been an extremely valuable asset in our community. As a social service provider, ALBA aids the families I work with on a regular basis. The ladies of ALBA frequently check in with my program to see what needs we have that they can help with. Whenever I have had a family who has lost their belongings in a fire, ALBA is the first point of contact I make when seeking outside services. They provide clothing and hygiene items so the families have one less worry on their mind when in emergency.
To help fund the wonderful services ALBA provides, they operate an upscale resale shop. The ALBA resale shop is an excellent place! Personally, I make donations and purchases from the shop because it is so clean and the volunteers are so friendly. I greatly admire all the work ALBA does for the Clear Lake area.

This is my first year working closely with Assistance League of Bay Area. I am a social worker in a school, and AL Bay Area has helped supply school clothes and supplies for many of my students. They are a tremendous resource.
