National Assistance League is part of the first wave of nonprofit organizations in America that empowered ordinary citizens to evoke positive change in their communities through long-term volunteerism. Formed in 1935, the organization’s roots date back to the turn of the century when a charity-minded group of Los Angeles women used their time and resources to help people in need.
Today, 23,000 member volunteers at 120 chapters nationwide serve 1.5 million people annually by raising more than $38.8 million to fund a wide-range of community-based programs. Assistance League’s signature program, Operation School Bell®, helps children succeed by providing clothing, shoes, health assistance, school supplies and backpacks. Assistance League also provides literacy programs. For more information, visit www.AssistanceLeague.org.
