Review for Assistance League of Wichita, Inc., Wichita, KS, USA
Assistance League of Wichita does amazing work in our community. As a teacher, I have first hand knowledge of how their work allows our Social Workers to help students obtain the proper clothing needed to attend school with a positive attitude about how they look. This service is invaluable to our at risk students who are waging the basic battles of survival at every turn. Knowing that ALW provides this service also encourages me to donate to their Thrift Shop, supporting that mission. I know that my donations are not only treated well and displayed with care, but the profits gained help the clothing mission continue. Additionally ALW's Gingerbread Village addresses another "need" of some students. Those who are recognized by National Honor Society and other honor organizations are encouraged to volunteer at this event. They are helping ALW, serving their community, and positively engaging with others as they assist the members in this endeavor. This type of interaction, all too often overlooked as young people grow and develop, provides them the opportunity to see the benefits of service to others and encourages them to have a giving heart. Assistance League of Wichita is a wonderful organization for our city, serving with compassion and care.
