Assistance League of Tucson
April 21, 2011
I have been a volunteer for the Professional Association of Women's Services, an auxiliary of Assistance League to Tucson for five years, and serve on its Board. This Assistance League auxiliary allows professional women the opportunity to do volunteer work to benefit children in our community. It dovetails nicely with the overall mission of Assistance League of Tucson's mission to support women and children in Tucson. P.A.W.S. focus is providing child safe Teddy Bears to children in crisis, helping them to feel safe or to simply have something to cling to when they are very sick or being taken from their home due to neglect, physical or sexucal abuse. We distribute 1,500 bears each year
