Assistance League of Southwest Washington
To create hope and effect positive change within our community through philanthropic programs that meet the needs of children and families. We do this through: Assault Survivor Kits supplied to all local hospital emergency departments so that women and children who are assaulted have new clothing and toiletries; My Life Story Books--beautiful handmade binders given to all children in foster care for saving their treasures; Operation School Bell--providing literacy supplies and new clothing to children in high-poverty schools and to teens suddenly entering foster care; and for sponsorships for early intervention for very young children with developmental challenges.
Funding to "adopt" additional schools so that we can supply kids in need with new clothing, shoes and literacy supplies and to include even more teens in foster care in a back-to-school shopping trip. We also welcome members who want to join us in fundraising activities and in volunteering with children's programs.
