Over 100 members work very hard each year to fund and deliver programs, here in Hawaii.
Wonderful friendships form in the course of working with women who care about their community, and each other.
The main source of funds is the Thrift Shop on Young Street in Honolulu, which is run solely by Assistance League volunteer members.
Additional funds come from a direct mail campaign, grants and individual donations. Funds raised are used in helping the local community and communities throughout the state of Hawaii.
The majority of program activities are during the day from August through May with a monthly luncheon meeting the second Wednesday of each month.
The Hawaii chapter began in 1971; there are over 120 Assistance League chapters nationwide. Each chapter operates the Operation School Bell® program, providing new school clothing to children in Title I schools (Free and Reduced lunch program participants), as well as additional programs that address local community needs.
Assistance League is a nonprofit organization of volunteers who are committed to identifying unmet needs and addressing them through programs developed and delivered by the members.
