Our Six Programs Reach Out to Our Community

Operation School Bell  To help schoolchildren in need, bags filled with clothing, a hygiene kit, a gift card for shoes, and a book and/or a toy are put together for both boys and girls who are referred to us by school counselors.  We have clothed approximately 30,000 ‘School Bell Children’ since 1989.    Go to “More about Operation School Bell” for more information.



Comfort Kits, are backpacks filled with lots of age-and gender-appropriate comfort, educational, and hygiene items for children who are in foster care.  CASA workers (Court Appointed Special Advocates), distribute the kits to  foster children for us.  Our members contribute over 200 Comfort Kits each year.  Shown in this picture are some of our ladies on their way to deliver backpacks.


Book Buddies are our member-volunteers who visit Stockton’s Lottie Grunsky School each week to help second grader who are struggling with their reading skills.This program uses school approved materials to teach phonics and comprehension skills.  Go to “More about Book Buddies” for more information.



Re-Share allows us to re-donate our overstocked thrift shop items of clothing and housewares to other nonprofits in our community. Only other 501 (c)(3) organizations may benefit from Re-Share.  Currently we Re-Share with  nonprofits such as the The Child Abuse Prevention Council, Gospel Center Rescue Mission, Showered With Love and the  Salvation Army.

Scholarships for Teens.  We offer scholarships each year for teens who have aged out of the foster care system.  They must live in San Joaquin County and be registered at Delta College.  The scholarships are intended to help with registration and texts costs.

CAPC Moms & Kids. The San Joaquin Child Abuse Prevention Council refers families to Assistance League when they are faced with dire circumstances and in need of emergency clothing.  These families are supplied with clothing, basic necessities and a gift card.
