The Assistance League of Capistrano Valley (ALCV) announces over $249,000 returned to the community through six philanthropic programs last year. Over 15,000 children in the Capistrano Unified School District, families serving at Camp Pendleton and single parents participating in the Saddleback College CalWORKS program were assisted.
ALCV’s 200 member contributed 16,380 in volunteer hours last year. Volunteers manage and staff the Bargain Box Thrift Store in San Clemente, which is the primary source of revenue for funding programs. For the past two years, the Bargain Box won the silver award for the best thrift store in San Clemente. In over forty years of service, ALCV has given back over $5.5 million to the community.
