ALGSD’s Assisteens® auxiliary welcomes teen volunteers, grades 7-12, from various schools throughout the San Diego area. During their first year of operation, in addition to electing officers and creating their own bylaws, they have:
- Designed and had T-shirts made
- Volunteered in our Thrift Shop
- Volunteered with our OSB program at Target, as personal shoppers for students getting school clothes
- Organized a “Showers of Blessings,” distributing blankets, backpacks and socks to the homeless
- Participated in the Mission Hills-Hillcrest Library book pass
- Created two philanthropic programs they call “Ability Athletics” and “Home at Heart”
- Planned participation in upcoming Special Olympics Track Meets
We are very proud of these young people, and their commitment to serving the community!
As they declare on their T-shirts, “The Future is Bright!”
