Assistance League of San Antonio is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that puts caring and commitment into action through philanthropic programs in the San Antonio community.  Member volunteers are dedicated to ongoing support and a long-term presence in the community through hands-on involvement and innovative philanthropic programs.

Since its charter in 1988, Assistance League of San Antonio member volunteers have consistently provided quality service to the San Antonio area.  During the 2015-2016 year, 442 members contributed over 75,000 hours to serve nearly 72,000 children and adults in our community.

Attempting to meet previously underserved needs, Assistance League of San Antonio supports eight 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.
