Visitors to Assistance League of Reno-Sparks' building on Vassar Street in Reno are amazed at the flurry of activity that goes on there: Six days a week volunteers man the Thrift Store and Senior Sampler consignment shop; the Food Pantry buzzes with members filling bags of food supplies, getting them ready for distribution to local low income seniors; Operation School Bell® committee members organizing the next shopping event to clothe low income elementary and middle school students; puppeteers rehearsing their next The Kids on the Block presentation to local school children on topics such as bullying and physical disabilities; Links to Learning members completing their selection process to award grant money to teachers for school projects for which funding is not available; volunteers receiving and sorting donations for sale, with unusable items going to other area nonprofits; and meetings and administration involving all 12 philanthropic programs. These amazing women give so much to the success of our chapter. If you get a chance, drop by and check out the action.
