Operation Celebration is a service program administered by Assisteens®, a group of incredible young volunteers. Our Assisteens, under the supervision of energetic adult ALKC sponsors, pour themselves into touching the lives of struggling and impoverished people in our community for whom celebrations are often few and far between. Assisteens exists to shine hope into the lives of these hurting people.
Assisteens is open to students in grades 7 thru 12 who desire to work alongside other service-minded teens dedicated to making a difference in their communities. Assisteens members should also be prepared to make lots of new friends, laugh, learn, and have tons of fun!
During 2022-2023 Celebration bags containing a cake mix, frosting, a book, and a gift were given to children who had been removed from their homes and placed in temporary foster care facility; homeless teens received duffel bags for their belongings, hot meals, and sack lunches were provided to homeless persons and children were served through a trunk-or-treat event.
