Philanthropic Programs

Operation School Bell®

Elementary students (kindergarten through fifth grade) visit our facility and, with the help of our member volunteers, select new clothing including socks and underwear.  They also receive a shoe voucher, jacket, personal care kit, school supplies, and a new book.  Their smiles as they leave are as big as their clothing-filled bags!

Very Important Performers

Each semester, Very Important Performers honors local middle school students who have shown dramatic improvements in academics, attendance, and behavior, or have made a positive difference in their school environment.  We treat these students to a luncheon and awards ceremony at our facility.  School officials and family members also join in these celebrations.

Craft Fair Gift Shop

This unique consignment gift shop showcases the hand-crafted goods of seniors and might be the best kept secret in Pasadena.  People in the know shop here for the extensive collection of artwork in various mediums, jewelry, ceramics, toys, quilts, knitted and crocheted items for children and adults, baby gifts, home décor, holiday decorations, and more.

Bear Hugs

We provide huggable teddy bears to local kids who have been neglected, abused or otherwise traumatized.  We deliver these adorable bears to firefighters, social workers, and local hospitals and agencies to comfort and soothe distressed children.

Assault Survivor Kits®

Assault Survivor Kits helps restore dignity to assault victims by furnishing them with clothing and personal care items when law enforcement retains their clothing for evidence.  It is our hope that this act of kindness will comfort them.

Assistance League SNAP!

SNAP! (Serving Neighbors Around Pasadena) is our newest program.  It is designed to give our volunteers the flexibility they need to quickly respond to community needs as they arise on a one-time-only basis.
