Thank you for visiting our website. We are excited this year to be celebrating 50 years of service in Benton County. Assistance League of Corvallis is a nonprofit, volunteer organization which has focused on responding to our local community needs. The members develop, implement and fund on-going programs to serve children and adults with specific needs in Benton County.
Assistance League of Corvallis is one of 120 chapters under National Assistance League®, which supports community based philanthropic programs. Operation School Bell®, a program to clothe children in need, is the signature program that all chapters support. Additionally, each individual chapter decides how they can best support the other needs of their community. In the Program section of this website, you can read detailed information about each of our programs: Operation School Bell, SAT Review, Hygiene Help, RED (Read Every Day), Hug-A-Bear, and Dental Education.
Fifty years ago, 110 women came together to form the Corvallis chapter of Assistance League. Its goal, which remains the same today, was to transform the lives of children and adults through community programs. Our membership has grown to 200 members who volunteer over 20,000 hours a year. Our programs and administrative services are funded by donations, grants, a direct mail campaign and two annual fundraising events: Galleria (along with ALC foods) and Winter’s Eve Corvallis, which will be held respectively on October 19, 2019 and December 6, 2019. We rely on community support and the time and talents of our volunteers. Membership is open to all.
