Established in September 2019, Assisteens is Assistance League of Coppell’s teen auxiliary. When students join Assisteens, they learn the value of volunteerism and become contributing members of the community.  Assisteens members determine the charitable programs and volunteer opportunities where they will participate. This gives the members a sense of ownership and excitement over the programs they serve.  Past service projects include mentoring elementary age CISD students, making blankets for residents of St. Joseph Village and River Oaks Assisted Living Center, collecting shoes and clothing for Soles4Souls, volunteering with Sack Summer Hunger and cleaning the Coppell Nature Park trails. This group meets monthly during the school year and is open to students in grades 7 – 12.

Our next member meeting will be held on October 29 at 3 p.m. at the Coppell Family YMCA.  An officer with the Coppell Police Department will speak about the dangers of drugs and alcohol.  We will have Fatal Vision Goggles on hand for members to try.

October 20: Trunk or Treat at the Coppell Family YMCA
