Our Philanthropic Programs Address the Needs of Children

Operation School Bell®

Elementary and middle school students  “shop” for brand new clothing with their parents and Assistance League of Visalia volunteers at our community partner,  Penney’s.    Each student leaves with a huge bag of new clothes, a wide grin and a renewed sense of confidence.

 Kids on the Block®

Puppets!  What kid doesn’t love a puppet, and the Assistance League of Visalia puppeteers bring these puppets to life in scripts about preventing bullying, tolerance of others, and empathy for the disabled.

Rainbow Reading

Assistance League’s literacy program reaches more than 1000 students a year.  Each year several schools in Visalia and Tulare County are selected to receive books.  ALL students select a new book to take home for their home library.  Literacy in the home begins with books in the home.
