Philanthropic Programs

Operation School Bell®

Students in grades K – 8 who are in need of appropriate new school clothing are referred by their school personnel to Operation School Bell located at the Assistance League of Chaves County chapter house at 2601 Aspen in Roswell, NM.  When students arrive for their appointments members help them select new clothing, including tops, pants, a jacket, a hygiene kit, a shoe voucher, socks and underwear, and at least one new book. Their smiles as they leave are as big as the bags they are carrying!

Kids Are Pretty Special

Working through Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), Assistance League of Chaves County provides diapers and wipes to infants and toddlers removed from abusive homes.

Backpacks For Homeless

This program provides 50 backpacks filled with blankets, hats, gloves, soap, washcloth, sets of toiletries, and other items for homeless men and women who can pick them up at Harvest Ministries.

Adopt A Nursing Home

Seasonably themed monthly birthday parties and a Christmas party are hosted for Sunset Villa Care residents and friends by Assistance League members who bring cakes, beverages, and small gifts.

Museum Hosting

Assistance League members volunteer as hostesses at artist opening receptions at the Roswell Museum and Art Center.

Pass It On

Excess clothing and items are donated periodically from the Assistance League of Chaves County Thrift Shop to other nonprofit organizations who issue it free of cost to people in need, such as the Roswell Refuge for Battered Adults, JIREH, Lincoln County Christian Services, and The Starting Line.

Silver Belles

Coordinated by our Las Lianas Committee, this program honors senior girls selected by their high school personnel according to established criteria.
