Philanthropic Programs

Operation School Bell® provides new school clothes to underprivileged children living in the Victor Valley.  Properly clothed, and with a sense of pride in their appearance, they attend school with anticipation, improved attendance and an eagerness to learn.

Operation Hug provides teddy bears for children brought to local area emergency rooms due to illness or injury.  E.R. staff distributes these cuddly bears that help provide comfort to children at a stressful time.  This past year, over 1,620 teddy bears were distributed at local area emergency rooms.

Assault Survivor Kits® is a philanthropic program that provides clothing and personal grooming items to victims of sexual assault when their clothing is retained as evidence in a criminal investigation.  Each kit contains a jacket, shirt and pants, underwear, socks or slippers and hygiene items.  Kits are distributed as needed by counselors from the Victorville office of San Bernardino Sexual Assault Services.

Project R.E.A.D., (Read, Enjoy And Develop) was adopted by Assistance League of Victor Valley to meet identified needs of local school children.  Project R.E.A.D. funding supports the annual Young Author’s Program and Newspapers In Education.
