Review for Assistance League of Reno-Sparks, Reno, NV, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I'm astonished at the number of committed women in Assistance League who work together to better the people in our community, and I'm proud to be one of them. The initial draw for me to join this organization was one program called Operation Schoolbell. As a former teacher, I loved the fact that community folks were willing to dress many of our children living in poverty. Today, I continue to work with children, but now through a program I helped start called Read to ME---a preschool literacy program whereby Assistance League volunteers read one-on-one to children ages 2-5 three times a week in the Boys & Girls Club preschool in Reno. Recently, Assistance League joined forces with the Associated General Contractors and the Washoe County School District to raise 3000 books to start a lending library in that preschool. The beauty of our organization is that women from every walk of life can find a niche where their energies, passions, and efforts provide needed and necessary aid to folks in our community.
