Review for Assistance League of Las Vegas, Las Vegas, NV, USA
Since 2013, I have had the pleasure of working with Assisteens┬«, an auxiliary of Assistance League┬«. This group of adolescents regularly shows me what is right with today's teens. So far this year 33 members have volunteered over 630 hours to improve lives in our community. They have given up precious Saturdays to guide children through Operation School Bell. They have spent Sundays making blankets for OSB, dressing bears for first responders, and earning money to shop for plus-size clothing to accommodate the larger students who come through OSB. They collected and distributed 263 books to children who didn't have a book to call their own. Most heartwarming though was their decision this year to forego their own holiday party to host one for underprivileged students. In December they served 57 youngsters breakfast and lunch, helped them shop at OSB, provided each a photo op with Santa, presented each a stocking full of goodies, and had each choose a stuffed animal and book. If these teens are our future, it seems to me we are in very good hands!
