Assistance League of Coppell is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that transforms lives and strengthens the Coppell community through philanthropic programs.  Member volunteers are dedicated to ongoing support and a long-term presence in the community through hands-on involvement and innovative philanthropic programs. We meet on the third Thursday each month beginning in August through May at 10:00 a.m.

Since its charter in 2001, Assistance League of Coppell member volunteers have consistently provided quality service. During the 2019-2020 year, 37 members contributed over 3,600 hours to serve children and adults in our community.

Assistance League of Coppell supports the philanthropic programs listed below.  These programs provide services to every age range in the community.

Operation School Bell®

Operation School Bell is a nationwide philanthropic program of Assistance League. The purpose of this program is to provide school clothes to children in need. Sometimes these are school uniforms, and sometimes they are shorts, pants, short sleeve and long sleeve shirts. Also included is a coat, backpack, socks, shoes, underwear, toothpaste and a toothbrush.

Helping Hearts

Each week volunteer members bring donuts and serve coffee to the residents of River Oaks and CHRISTUS St. Joseph Village adult assisted living centers. Members visit with the residents and entertain them with crossword puzzles.

Youth Today

Implements programs aimed at teaching children how to make good choices by supporting and encouraging healthy lifestyles.

Drug testing kits: Assistance League of Coppell provides drug testing kits and pamphlets free of charge to concerned parents in our community.

Fatal Vision goggles: These goggles are specially designed and manufactured to simulate the visual impairment caused by alcohol or other drugs. The principle underlying the Fatal Vision Program is to demonstrate how quickly impairment can turn fun into devastating consequences.

Shattered Dreams: Adopted in the spring of 2001, Shattered Dreams is a day-long dramatization of an alcohol-related crash at Coppell High School (CHS), complete with Coppell Police and emergency medical services.

Journeys: This is a mentoring program aimed at select elementary and middle school children and was initiated in spring 2002.
