Celebrating 50 Years of Service
in El Paso County

Assistance League of El Paso is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that puts caring and commitment into action through philanthropic programs in El Paso County since 1967.   Our chapter is comprised of 122 members who have volunteered nearly 24,000 hours this year to help the El Paso community.   We have no paid employees.

85 percent of all donations are returned back to the community through the four community-based philanthropic programs below.  Projections indicate 3,000 children will be served this year.  Your donation to the El Paso Assistance League is greatly appreciated and helps many children in our city and county.
