Belk Charity Days

Assistance League of Greater Wilmington has been proud to partner with Belk  for their charity days ever since we introduced a chapter in the greater Wilmington area. Selling tickets within our organization and to the general public brings many residents to help the cause. Our volunteers also help on the sale days. In these ways we contribute to the charity event. This involvement entitles us to the ticket proceeds and a portion of the day’s sales. Our partnership with Belk underscores our mission of serving the community.

The Arby’s Foundation

Thanks to an employee recommendation, The Arby’s Foundation presented us with a grant for our Snack Packs program which falls under the umbrella of Operation School Bell.  Many thanks to both the employee and the foundation.

North Carolina Community Foundation

The Suzanne and George Taylor Endowment Fund, a component fund of the North Carolina Community Foundation, has, over the years, granted us a generous amount for Operation School Bell®.  Their charitable award for the 2019-2020 fiscal year will allow us to serve numerous children in New Hanover County.

Catherine Kennedy Home Foundation Grant

Assistance League of Greater Wilmington was among several recipients of grants awarded by the Catherine Kennedy Home Foundation in Wilmington.  Our philanthropic program, Operation Seniors, will use the grant at the Leland House.

Coastal Carolina Women’s Club

Over the last few years Assistance League has received a number of grants.  These enhanced our philanthropic programs.  We were able to buy Teddy Bears to distribute to children in hospitals or in situations requiring EMS.  A wheelchair was purchased for our full-size disabled puppet.  This really connects with the children when our puppets put on shows at the schools about diversity and bullying.
