Assistance League Chicagoland West
Assistance League Chicagoland West members believe that a small gesture can influence a life, and that need exists even in the midst of privilege. Our all-volunteer membership identifies unmet community needs, structures programs to fill those needs, and raises the funds necessary to deliver quality solutions. From winter coats to kitchen essentials, literacy programs to COD scholarships, our work is driven by the passion of our members. Our innovative education and outreach programs benefit struggling children, families, and adults in our local community.
We always need more members to grow our organization so check us out at alcw.org or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, hands-on involvement in some of our programs is more limited at this time but our members are still active in re-structuring both our programs and fundraising activities.
