Assistance League of Denver has been serving the greater Denver community for 58 years. Last year 273 members devoted over 35,000 hours and spent $285,000 helping children and adults in need.
We are an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to serve children and adults through its nine innovative philanthropic programs: Operation School Bell®, Hospital Equipment Lending Program, Scholarship, Hospitality House, Assault Survivor Kits®, Arts for Kids, Caps for Kids, ALDO Bears, and Serve Our Seniors.
The Denver chapter was organized in 1953, chartered in 1958, and was the first chapter of National Assistance League located outside of California. There are 120 Assistance League chapters in 26 states with just under 26,000 members. In 2013-14, Assistance League chapters returned over $38 million to local communities across the country and invested ~3.34 million service hours.
Our Thrift Mart is located at 1331 E. Colfax Avenue. Store hours are 10 AM to 3 PM Monday through Saturday. We welcome your clothing and household donations.
Other funding sources include grants, corporate and individual donations, “The Happening” and “TableScapes” fundraisers, an annual appeal letter requesting monetary donations, participation in “Colorado Gives”, as well as our Endowment Fund.
