Over the years we have donated $$, reusable clothing and housewares to ALR. It is a delight to see the children that are helped by giving to this all-volunteer organization. It's good to know that they use everything to help the kids in our community. That's right, they use everything for local needs!!
Seeing kids get new clothes and their smiles make Assistance League of Riverside my favorite non-profit.
