Remember when you went back to school? You were so proud of your new clothes and shoes! You were ready to learn. Assistance League of Denver strives to provide this same experience for all children. We have worked with Denver area Title I schools to overcome learning barriers by providing new clothing, books, and other necessities for over 62 years. You might have heard of Operation School Bell…that’s Assistance League; all volunteers…all with funds we raise ourselves!
This year, we began a long-term collaboration with Denver and Aurora Public Schools to bring impactful programming to Boston K-8 and Valverde Elementary School. We provide our programs, including Operation School Bell, Arts for Kids, Legacy of Literacy and Scholarships. Arts for Kids brings performing arts into the schools; Legacy of Literacy brings age-appropriate books and reading events. Our Scholarships support parents seeking to improve their skills and standard of living. We believe that by concentrating our efforts over time, we can bring transformative change to the lives and learning of 900 students and their families.
Our traditional Operation School Bell will provide new school clothing to 2,700 children this year. Arts for Kids will bring the arts to six (6) local schools. We will provide scholarships to three local community colleges and technical schools.
Our commitment to strengthen Denver area communities doesn’t stop there. We recognize the dignity of sexual assault survivors by providing clothing and hygiene products to victims at area hospitals. We empower those in need by providing durable medical equipment free of charge. We support seniors through hosted events, and so much more. Since 1960, we have returned $8,825,000 to our community.
We need your support to continue and to expand our programs. Please include Assistance League of Denver in your holiday giving plans and by visiting our fantastic Thrift Shop. For more information, please visit our website.
