College Scholarships

As the school year ends, we award substantial college scholarships to students graduating from high school and to students moving on from local community colleges to complete their four-year degrees.

We are proud to invest in the futures of these impressive and deserving young people!

The 2019 Upper Division Scholarship application period is now open!

Treasure Bazaar

On Saturday, May 4, 2019 we will hold our 16th Annual “Treasure Bazaar”. This special event raises funds for our philanthropic programs, most notably Operation School Bell®, by which we clothe over 3,000 San Diego area school children annually. Our Thrift Shop at 108 University Avenue in San Diego, is the grateful recipient of community donations throughout the year, and from those, we cull the “Treasures” that we offer at our big sale.

Our “Treasure Bazaar” spills out the backdoor of our shop into the parking lot on 1st Street.  There we feature fine art and furniture, and continue indoors with fine and vintage jewelry, retro household items, crystal, fine linens, vintage clothing and accessories.

Don’t miss this year’s event on Saturday, May 4th, 2019!


It is with great pride that we announce the Grand Reopening Ceremony for our Assistance League Thrift Shop will be on Friday, March 29, 2019.  Join us and local dignitaries for our ribbon-cutting at 11:30am and then check out our newly remodeled facility and, of course, for some great shopping!

School Clothing Event

On November 3, 2018, ALGSD partnered with the Larry Himmel Neighborhood Foundation to provide school clothing for 50 low-income students at a local Target store. Each child received a gift card, and help from our volunteers to pick out school clothing. It was a fun event for all!

OSB Appreciation

Thank you for all of your help and support. This really means a lot to myself and my family. Your staff here at the Target in College Grove have gone above and beyond.
Thank you so very much!
