I have been a member of Assistance League's Auxiliary (smaller night-time group) but under the same umbrella since 2000. I love this organization, both the chapter and the auxiliary. Our part of the group provides "memory boxes" to area hospitals for grieving parents who lose an infant at birth. The boxes contain a blanket, a handmade burial gown and bonnet, a book on grieving and loss (English and Spanish versions) and an angel pin for the mom. We donate approximately 200 of these boxes per year. We also write, illustrate, and print our own copyrighted little books that we call Pocketbooks. Some are story books, some cover a concept like numbers or colors, and some are for the very earliest readers. This year, we will donate 90,000 of these little books to high risk schools. The women work extremely well together as a group and form very close bonds. Come join us!
