As a volunteer and a donor, Assistance League of Tucson, makes a difference in the lives of so many people in the community! NEW clothes for school children, household supplies to those who are starting over with nothing, kits for victims of sexual assault and books for incarcerated mothers to share with their children - these are the people that have been helped by my donations and by the time I volunteer.This is a GREAT organization and can always use more volunteers to help fulfill our mission!

As a Board member for the past two years, it has been so rewarding to see how many people in Tucson are helped by our organization. All of our philanthropic programs are carried out by volunteers! We have NO paid staff at all and the dedication of our members is astounding!
We have been able to dress disadvantaged children, provide supplies to families starting over and provide assault survivor kits to those in need - all because of the thousands of hours put in by our volunteers.

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

watching a face of a child light up because they have received new clothing and backpacks that we have chosen together.

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

Hope to add more volunteers so that we can increase the scope of our programs and to increase our donations as well.
