Operation School Bell® – Camp Pendleton

Every year we collaborate with other local Assistance League chapters to provide new back-to-school clothing and school supplies to children of enlisted military families at Camp Pendelton in Oceanside, CA.

Operation School Bell® – Clothing Children

Assistance League of Rancho San Dieguito services children in the school districts of Coastal North County San Diego. By providing children with new school clothing, Operation School Bell contributes to their success in the school setting.

Assault Survivor Kits®

Survivors of sexual assault are referred to a San Diego County Sexual Assault Response Team. Their clothing is often kept as evidence, so having a change of clothes becomes a critical issue during this vulnerable time in their lives. Assistance League of Rancho San Dieguito provides sweatpants, sweatshirts and personal hygiene items to them before they are sent home.

Operation School Bell – Camp Scholarships

Assistance League of Rancho San Dieguito helps local school districts fund sixth grade camp for children from families facing financial difficulties.

Preschool English Literacy Program

Our volunteers partner with a Head Start Program in Solana Beach, CA to provide children 4- to 5-years-old with a variety of learning experiences to help them grow intellectually, socially, and emotionally.

Jeans For Teens

We partner with an Oceanside program to donate jeans, towels, blankets, food, gift cards, hand-knitted caps and scarves to homeless teens.

Hug-A-Bear

Our Hug-A-Bear program provides children and adults a sense of comfort as they face traumatic life events.

Flowers for Seniors

We collect flowers at no cost from a local merchant, arrange them in vases and deliver them to several local assisted living facilities. We have delivered over $700 worth of flowers during just one Flowers For Seniors event! We do this three times during our calendar year.

Knifty Knitters

Our volunteers knit or crochet children’s sweaters, hats, booties and blankets for newborn infants of military families. We also supply knitted items to homeless teens and deployed military personnel.

Assisteens®

Assisteens is an Auxiliary of Assistance League of Rancho San Dieguito that formed in June 2016. Members are involved in community service.
