The DreamCatchers Auxiliary of Assistance League of Huntington Beach was established in 1993 by women who wanted to serve the community but whose schedules-whether work or other responsibilities- limited their volunteer time. Since receiving its charter in 1994, DreamCatchers has provided women with time constraints an opportunity to “give back” through its support of some key Assistance League of Huntington Beach’s programs and its own philanthropic endeavors.
We meet on the 2nd Wednesday of the month from 7-8:30 p.m. DreamCatchers staff the Thrift Store on the first Saturday of the month. Each of our members volunteers for three of those Saturdays a year. We also participate in the annual fundraising event in the Spring.
