Mission Statement

Assistance League of Conejo Valley is a nonprofit organization comprised of volunteers who identify, develop, implement and fund ongoing philanthropic programs to improve the lives of children and adults in our community.

Description

The chapter manages several philanthropic programs staffed by member volunteers.

OPERATION SCHOOL BELL: Children designated by their schools receive new school clothing at a Clothing Shopping Night. The students are able to start the school year on an equal footing with their more fortunate classmates. In addition to new school clothing, Operation School Bell offers a literacy program in area schools to help improve students' reading skills; equips third grade students with dictionaries in designated schools; and stocks 32 elementary schools with emergency clothing kits with essential clothing items for minor mishaps.

ASSAULT SURVIVOR KITS: This program helps restore dignity to assault survivors by furnishing clothing and personal care items when their clothing has been retained by the police for evidence purposes.

SHARE-A-BEAR: Provides teddy bears to local hospitals, fire, police and sheriff departments to comfort children and adults in crisis.

I’M IN CHARGE: This is a personal safety program taught to 3rd grade students by trained member volunteers.

ASSISTEENS: Auxiliary of the chapter comprised of middle and high school student volunteers.

This is a dynamic group of women who strive to make their community a better place for everyone. They have fun doing it too. We work together and play together as we form lifelong friendships. The smiles on the school children's faces are our reward.
