Assistance League's chapters are all-volunteer organizations that develop and implement programs to make a difference in the lives of the men, women and children they serve in their communities. Their programs provide services in their communities for needs not covered by anyone else.
To fund these philanthropic programs, the chapters raise funds in many different ways. They write grants, manage and run thrift, gift and consignments shops, have luncheons with authors, fashion shows or famous speakers; throw black tie or themed galas with live and silent auctions, dinner and dancing. They organize home tours with local chefs offering tastings, mail out tea bags for phantom teas, and are always thinking of new ways to encourage others to support their programs.
Miles away from the glamour of Hollywood, Assistance League of San Bernardino has just celebrated its 54th Annual Signature Headdress Ball. This year's theme was Circus Dreams. More...
The Thrift Shop Road Trip is nearly at the end of the road. For our second to last region, this month we are in the Inland Empire area of Southern California. We begin in Palm Springs where the temperatures are heating up. The shop has recently been renovated - look for the deep blue awning over the front door. The shop features furniture, boutique and jewelry, small household appliances and items, clothing, shoes, purses, decorative items, sporting goods and linens. There are monthly sales. Donations and purchases help clothe deserving children in the Coachella Valley. The shop will be closing for the summer on June 1 and will reopen on October 1. Stop by for the big end of season sale before the end of May. More...
