Review for Assistance League of the Bay Area, Houston, TX, USA
I have worked with the Assistance League of the Bay Area for over 20 years. They are by far one of the most generous, hardworking and professional organizations I know. For over two decades the Assistance League has provided clothes, hygiene products, food and other vital needs to the children we serve through Communities In Schools – Bay Area (CIS). More importantly they have provided students hope for a brighter future.
The Assistance League of the Bay Area works directly with CIS site coordinators to provide clothing, shoes and hygiene kits to children through Operation School Bell. Through Operation Cinderella seniors in High School who might not otherwise attend their school prom are given prom attire including tuxedos, dresses, jewelry and more. The Assistance League also provides eye glasses to many of our students as well as dental care to others through one of its members. Finally, through Operation Support Our Schools, the Assistance League of the Bay Area designates an Assistance League Liaison for each of the 16 schools where we have a program. This Assistance League Member provides a myriad of support through donations of food, gifts for our students during the holidays, provision of nutritional support and incentives for students to stay in school.
Thank you, Assistance League of the Bay Area, for transforming the lives of thousands of children a year through your support of CIS – Bay Area and your commitment to our community.
