Assistance League of the Bay Area Community Outreach is a philanthropic program that began in 2011.
This program allows the chapter to meet one-time or emergency needs that are not addressed by one of the other five programs we manage.
For the 2016-2017 fiscal year, the Community Outreach Committee authorized expenditures that:
- Provided 132 sets of Caldecott Medal Honor books to 2nd grade classrooms in Title I schools, 127 sets of Texas Bluebonnet Award Books to 3rd grade classrooms in Title I schools, and 26 sets of the Tejas Star Reading List to campus libraries in the Clear Creek, Dickinson, and La Porte Independent School Districts;
- Funded two Clear Creek Education Foundation and La Porte Education Foundation Teacher Grants totaling $8,000; and
- Purchased a Digital Stethoscope which enabled a hearing-impaired student to succeed in the high school certified nursing assistance program.
