We are a 501(c)(3)
A letter from the president...
Welcome to the website of Assistance League of San Luis Obispo County!
Please take some time and look through these pages. They represent very well who we are and what we do.
We have two philanthropic programs: Operation School Bell® with its sub-programs Operation Bookshelf and Dental Products, and Collaborations. Assistance League clothed over 1,600 disadvantaged children in the County during the 2015-2016 school year. We provide new school clothing to kindergarten – 12th grade students in all ten (10) school districts in our County.
Our funding comes from a variety of sources. Our chapter holds a fashion show luncheon, has a direct mailer, and our Thrift Store at 667 A Marsh Street, San Luis Obispo. Other funding is provided by event sponsorships; grants and donations from foundations, service organizations, and municipalities; and through the generosity of private contributors. All funding stays within our County. As is required in all endeavors that want to continue and prosper, we are constantly evaluating our efforts, performance and the needs of the community we serve.
The world of the all-volunteer nonprofit is unique and is becoming more and more rare. We are a 501(c) (3) corporation and do all the same things for-profit corporations do but we do it with no paid staff. We agree upon a goal, plan a
strategy with all the considerations of time and funding of how to achieve it, assign committees and officers responsibilities of oversight and go to work. Our 140 member volunteers, as they have always been throughout our 20 year history,are organized, productive, energetic and dedicated to “making a difference” in the life of someone else’s child.
Please consider attending one of our monthly membership meetings. Also, please stop by our Thrift Store as a donor or shopper!
