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.  This group meets monthly during the school year and is open to students in grades 7 – 12.

For more information or if you have questions, please contact Debbie Hinson, Assisteens Coordinator, at alcoppellac@gmail.com.

ASSISTEENS NEWS

Our Assisteens of Coppell members enjoyed participating in the Coppell Independence Day parade on July 3. In addition to passing out beads and candy, members distributed handouts that promoted our organization.

In honor of Action! Week, Assisteens members made blankets for the residents of CHRISTUS St. Joseph Village and River Oaks Assisted Living Center.  The project became especially important due to the extreme cold weather the area experienced in February 2021.

Working with Coppell Cares, Assisteens assembled approximately 150 sacks of nutritious breakfast, lunch and snack items for eligible CISD students to eat over the weekend when they are not receiving meals at school.

Although we were unable to meet throughout most of the 2020-2021 school year due to the pandemic, Assisteens members enjoyed getting together each month via Zoom. At our meetings, we would discuss upcoming volunteer activities and discuss other ways in which we could work to help our community.

Assisteens members were thrilled to welcome Dr. Brad Hunt, Superintendent of Coppell Independent School District, to our April 2020 meeting and enjoyed our Q&A about activities happening in our district.

Assisteens made heart-shaped pillows for the attendees of A Night To Shine, a prom night experience for people with special needs.
