Each spring we sponsor a Spring Fling (now called Summer Sizzle) in the parking lot of the Thrift Shop selling plants in creative containers, unique yard art, crafts, baked goods and a raffle for Bronco tickets. All profits go to Assistance League of Denver’s signature program, Operation School Bell. In 2019 the Summer Sizzle will be even bigger and better and will take place June 14 and 15 in the parking lot of the Thrift Shop.
Legacy of Literacy was held at Warren Village in February of 2018 and was a big success. Twelve Assistance League of Denver and Auxiliary members read a Dr Seuss book to 22 children who were grouped by age. A related craft was completed and the children had a snack. Each child picked a second high interest book to take home in his/her bag.
Meanwhile fifteen parents met in a Parent Workshop where Assistance League of Denver and Auxiliary members shared effective strategies for reading aloud, literacy activities to do at home, and a process for helping children choose “just the right” book.
