Even during the pandemic, kids still start school. Those graduating from kindergarten at Innovative Services Northwest will get great pack packs filled with all the supplies they need for in-person or virtual school, thanks to Assistance League. Here, Geri Rowe delivers a whole trunkful of good stuff for the backpacks.
Assistance League recently received two new grants to further our philanthropic work. The Benevolent Fund of Cascades Presbyterian Church awarded $2500 for Assault Survivor Kits we place in the three local hospital emergency departments. The grant came just as one of the hospitals asked us to begin donating kits for men in addition to the ones for women and children…..
We provide new clothing and literacy supplies to children in need in 25 schools in Vancouver, Evergreen, Washougal and Woodland school districts. Member volunteers purchase requested items and deliver them to schools. During the pandemic, we have expanded our program to provide headsets, earbuds and styluses to children learning remotely, and family-friendly grocery gift cards to families facing food insecurity.
