Mickey and Minnie Mouse ears stood out among the volunteers for the Disney Family Volunteer Fund Raiser to support the Operation School Bell® and Teens Helping Teens programs of Assistance League of Victor Valley. Disney encourages families and kids to volunteer together by offering nonprofits the opportunity to earn Disneyland tickets to use for fundraising, by hosting a volunteering event where families can work together to make a difference in the local community.
Monday evening, 116 volunteers of Assistance League members and their families and friends, the Assisteens®, and community supporters such as US Bank and Spring Valley Lake Women’s Golf Club, gathered at the Chapter Office for a fun night of working together! Their goal, to assemble 2,000 grooming kids for economically disadvantaged students.
The boxes with bags and toiletries lined one wall. The Assisteens gathered the boxes delivering them to assigned tables. A total of 1,500 bags for Operation School Bell and 70 bags for Teens Helping Teens were filled. The groups at the tables were a mixture of teens, younger children and adults. People were on the move constantly. Mission accomplished!
The hands-on interaction of those from the community with the members of Assistance of Victor Valley brought a better appreciation of what we bring to the community. Helping those in need is a wonderful accomplishment, bringing people together to attain that goal brings pride to the community.
The reward of the Disney Family Volunteering fundraising event is in each photo, the smiles not just on the faces, but those that show in the eyes. It was an evening of giving that created a wonderful feeling in all who attended.
