Commencement ceremonies are taking place in high schools and universities across America this spring as graduates celebrate past accomplishments and anticipate a future bright with possibilities.

The importance of education and literacy are at the very heart of Assistance League. Co-founder Ada Edwards Laughlin attended Stanford University in the 1890's and taught school. Today, many Assistance League member volunteers are active or retired teachers who carry on the promise of education for all.
Assistance League of Huntington Beach has a strong tradition of giving scholarships. The tradition began in 1956, when the chapter awarded its first college scholarship; and was expanded in 1972 to include nursing scholarships for students at Golden West College in Huntington Beach. More...
The final Thrift Shop Road Trip region is San Diego County. We begin at Inland North County's Thrift & Consignment Shop that is the main fundraiser for community service programs. Shop in the light and airy store, from a constantly changing selection of gently used merchandise. New donations are placed on the shop floor daily. All merchandise is screened, cleaned and polished, if necessary. The shop sells furniture, collectibles, jewelry, household items, pictures, linens and men's, women's and children's clothing and accessories. Customers say: "I love shopping here…everything is so clean…I always find something to buy…your shop is the Nordstrom's of thrift stores."
Assistance League of North Coast's Thrift Shop is located in the Frazier Farms Shopping Center. The Shop offers reasonably priced merchandise in a clean and friendly environment. More...
