Review for Assistance League of Kansas City, Gladstone, MO, USA
Earlier in my career, I thought that, at retirement, I would join the Peace Corp. When I actually retired I realized that the Peace Corp was not a viable option for me. I instead joined Assistance League of Kansas City. I am now serving as president for the fiscal year 2013-2014 and this is my third year on the board. Volunteering in this organization has been one of the more rewarding experiences of my life. We serve our community in a myriad number of ways, with Operation School Bell being our signature program. We provided new clothing to more than 2,000 elementary children from September 2012 to December 2012. In the coming months, we hope to clothe even more..
Our primary funding comes from our thrift store, THE ReSALE SHOP. We are fortunate to have a community that provides donations and also shops at our store.
Assistance League members are passionate and dedicated to the mission of serving our community.
