Transforming Lives • Strengthening Community

WE BELIEVE

When essential needs are met in the community, families will flourish

When we put a smile on a child’s face, we all smile

When we clothe a child, we give them confidence to succeed in school

When we inspire a young person, we can change the path of their lives

WE ARE

Our History

Since its charter in 1988, Assistance League of San Antonio member volunteers have consistently provided quality service to the San Antonio area.  During the 2019-2020 year, 409 members contributed over 58,000 hours to serve nearly 37,000 children and adults in our community.

Attempting to meet previously underserved needs, Assistance League of San Antonio supports ten philanthropic programs.  These programs provide services to every age range in the community.

The Thrift House is our main source of funding.  The shop is staffed and managed entirely by our member volunteers.  Donations are always welcome and are tax deductible.

The Bexar Hugs Auxiliary, which became active in 1995, provides school boxes and school supplies for all Operation School Bell® children.
