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 Soles4Soles, 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.

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

MARK YOUR CALENDAR

Our next member meeting is on Sunday, January 22 at 3 p.m. in the upstairs meeting room at the Coppell YMCA (146 Town Center Blvd., Coppell).  During this meeting we will be making corsages and boutonnieres for Night to Shine on February 10 in Coppell.  Night to Shine is an unforgettable prom night experience for people with special needs, ages 14 and older.

Members are reminded to bring any collected plastic bottle caps to the meeting for our ongoing project for Banco de Tapitas.
