Fundraising

Assisteens participate in Sunday with Santa and an annual Style Show to raise funds to provide such things as Christmas gifts, prom formal wear, and grooming supplies for students in the independent living students program, Bridges. Assisteens also provide support to the chapter through donation of funds to Operation School Bell®.

Members assemble care kits for Operation School Bell, walk in and hand out flags in Norman’s Veterans Day Parade, and collect food, bedding, and other needed items for Norman Bridges students..  Members also help with clothing donations to Operation School Bell and last fall they collected and donated Halloween costumes for Operation School Bell which was a hit for the students selecting a costume.

The Assisteens host a fundraiser in December, Sunday with Santa.  They sell tickets to this annual event which includes Santa, games, crafts, food and fun for young families.

Members also donate to groups like Bridges and Norman North and Norman High food pantries.  Second Chance animal sanctuary and Norman Food and Shelter for Friends also have received donations.

The teens end their year helping with our annual May Fair Arts Festival.  They decorate the park and cheer on the runners in the May Fair 5k with fun signs and songs.
