Assistance League of Denver has been serving the greater Denver community for 65 years. The Denver Chapter was organized in 1953 and chartered in 1958 and was the first chapter of National Assistance League located outside of California. In 2021, our members devoted 34,000 hours to service. We served 11,000 people and returned $813,000 to meet the needs of people in the Denver community. Our chapter is highly motivated to effect change in our community because we care about the outcome.
We are an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to transform the lives of children and adults through its innovative philanthropic programs: Assistance League Schools, Operation School Bell®, Hospital Equipment Lending Program, Scholarship, Hospitality House, Assault Survivor Kits®, Arts for Kids, ALDO Bears, and Serve Our Seniors.
Our Thrift Shop is located at 6265 E. Evans Avenue, Suite 8, in Denver. Store hours are 10 AM to 4 PM Monday through Saturday. We welcome your clothing and household donations Monday through Saturday from 11 AM to 2 PM.
Other funding sources include grants, corporate and individual donations, “The Happening” and “Summer Sizzle” fundraisers, an annual appeal letter requesting monetary donations, participation in “Colorado Gives”, as well as our Endowment Fund.
Assistance League of Denver has been awarded several generous grants this year. These grants are from Delatour Foundation, Community First – Spaulding (H.E.L.P.), JC Penney, Liberty Media Corporation, and Helen Murray Charitable Trust. We appreciate the support from these generous donors. These grants will make it possible to continue our numerous Philanthropic Programs which benefit people living in the Denver area.
