Assisteens is an auxiliary for students in grades 7-12. This group supports Operation School Bell and We Help Others.
Members work during the summer to process new clothing as it arrives by truck. During the school year, they work with children residing at La Posada Home, which is a transitional living center for homeless women and children. Assisteens engage with the children at La Posada Home with crafts, games, outdoor activities and treats.
Another focus area is activity planning for residents at the senior retirement community Royal Estates. They interacted with the residents during their visits who thoroughly enjoyed their presence.
Fundraiser participation brought in a total of $5,390 from Mister Car Wash ticket sales, Barnes & Noble Day, Chihuahua Game and Braden Aboud Walk. The Assisteens have compiled 3,467 volunteer hours this year.
