Our chapter began in 1989 and became a chartered chapter of National Assistance League® in 1993. We are a nonprofit service organizationof volunteers committed to identifying and serving needs of the Santa Clarita Valley through philanthropic programs developed and administered by its members. In addition, our chapter holds various fundraising events to enable these programs to exist year after year.
Operation School Bell®, our signature program, provides new clothing and shoes to local school children. Operation School Bell helps children develop a sense of personal pride which leads to an increase in school attendance and academic performance. Over 1800 children in SCV elementary and junior high schools were served last year. Assistance League holds a number of events to raise funds for its philanthropic programs, as well as operates a resale business. Our Resale Shop opened on July 2, 1999 as a way to allow us to generate funs year round. Located on Main Streen in Newhall, Assistance League Resale Shop is open Monday - Saturday. Donated merchandise allows us to offer gently used clothing and household items at a fraction of their original price.
