Assistance League of Greater Placer

Established in 1987 as Assistance Guild of Auburn Foothills, Assistance League of Auburn Foothills was chartered as the 83rd chapter of National Assistance League in 1993. The chapter changed its name to Assistance League of Greater Placer in May 2004 to better reflect its service area. Beginning in 1987 with one program, serving children in the local woman's center, the chapter has grown to encompass 13 programs that touch the lives of more than 8.1 K people in Placer County communities, serving diverse needs in our community for youth, teens, adults, homeless/displaced citizens, and seniors.

Assistance League of Greater Placer's all-volunteer-run thrift shop provides approximately 70% of Assistance League of Greater Placer's funding, with the rest coming from fundraisers such as our Bingo, individual donations, and grants. Its dedicated volunteers have donated more than 40.2 K service hours last year and made a difference in the lives of under-served children and adults throughout Placer County.

Mission

Assistance League volunteers are transforming the lives of children and adults through community programs.

Needs

Operation School Bell: $100 provides school clothes for an elementary school student; $125 clothes a middle school student; $150 clothes a high school student. Every donation helps us provide more school age children the opportunity to succeed in their school environment.

Community Assistance: With additional financial resources, Assistance League of Greater Placer plans to reach more community members who experience an immediate crisis receive one-time help to move their lives forward in a positive direction.

Scholarships: Any amount goes towards providing an opportunity for an at risk alternative high school graduate to attend community college or trade school, opening the door for success later in life.

Feet Treat: $25 provides new shoes for students who are referred to our chapter by elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools all over Placer County.

Dressing for Success: $50 provides an adult community member with appropriate clothing to re-enter the workforce. With additional financial resources, Assistance League of Greater Placer will be able to serve more adult community members and help them to move toward financial independence.
