Review for Assistance League Of Tucson, Inc, Tucson, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The most rewarding experience in Assistance League of Tucson is volunteering in Operation School Bell. The most disadvantaged children in Tucson's Title 1 schools are selected to visit our Philanthropic Programs Center. As a volunteer I help an individual child shop for brand new clothing that we provide. Through funds received at our Thrift Shop, grants written by our members and donations from the community, we are able to purchase tops, jeans, shoes, jackets, underwear, socks, backpacks, school and grooming supplies. The children are very appreciative and so excited to have new clothing. You can see the happy smiles on their face. School administrators and teachers believe that new clothing increases a child's self esteem, which effects their attendance in school. It is such a good feeling to make a difference in a child's life.

Role:  Volunteer & Besides helping in Operation School Bell, I have packed Starting Over Supplies for individuals and families who have overcome homelessness, domestic violence or drug and alcohol addiction. Partnering with several social service agencies helps their clien.
