Sneakers for Military Families’ Preshoolers
Assistance League is a proud supporter of enlisted military personnel in our community. We provide much needed personal items for their preschoolers, ages 3 to 5. Our partnership with Support the Enlisted Project (STEP) helps us identify those who can benefit from our rapidly growing program.
We will hold events on the following dates: February 17, April 20, and June 22, 2024.
We look forward to being able to provide essential items to families with the greatest need.
ASSISTEENS® is an auxiliary of Assistance League® of Greater San Diego. Our Assisteens Chapter is comprised of a diverse membership, including students from various middle and high schools in 7th through 12th grades. Members meet on a monthly basis on the 2nd Sunday of the month at our Chapter House/Thrift Shop at 108 University Avenue, San Diego. Additionally, the members sign up to volunteer at a variety of philanthropic/community service events on scheduled weekends.
The Assisteens vote on their own philanthropic projects, which are funded entirely by their fundraising efforts. By working once a year in the Assistance League Thrift Shop, profits from that day are used to fund Assisteens philanthropic projects. Additionally, by volunteering in the Thrift Shop, Assisteens learn skills to effectively work in a retail store.
