Assist Kids and Assistance League

Do you want to make a difference for local children?  ALNV is looking for new members to help support our philanthropic programs that provide food, clothing and literacy programs at several Title 1 elementary schools throughout the area. We offer many opportunities to use your special skills and to develop new ones, while also making new friends among our dedicated team of caring volunteers.  We have  hands-on events, such as packing weekend food bags and Hugs Pillows; weekly reading-tutoring programs, and periodic book fairs at the schools.  We also have many behind-the-scenes activities, such as drafting grant applications, news releases, letters to supporters, and website support. If your background is tech, writing, graphic design, or photography, we can use your help.  If you want to give back to the community in any way, we can use your help.  Our membership includes retired and working individuals, women and men, who all share a commitment to help students and their families in the communities where we live.

We’re always seeking additional donations of gifts throughout the year, and appreciate any and all that you’re able to provide.
