Assistance League Antelope Valley participates in numerous programs to benefit the community.
Among our ongoing programs:
• Operation School Bell: This is Assistance League’s signature national philanthropic program that provides clothing and supplies to children in need.
• Assault Survivor Kits and Community Awareness: Assistance League Antelope Valley is working with the Antelope Valley Hospital Forensics Services Unit to raise awareness to our community by sponsoring a one-day conference, and by supplying kits with shampoo, toothbrush, hairbrush, flip-flops, etc., for anyone who has been assaulted.
• Winter Coat Program: This is a community effort in which Assistance League Antelope Valley collects winter coats throughout the year and delivers them to the Homeless Shelter, Forensics Services Unit or any other community group that requires this program.
• Gift Giving Program: Assistance League Antelope Valley purchases gifts for children in foster care during the holidays. Typically, approximately 200 gifts are given to children up to age 16.
• Music Program: Assistance League Antelope Valley provides musical instruments and music books to our local school districts.
• Infant and Preschool Needs: Assistance League Antelope Valley provides products for infants to preschool-age children upon request or initiation from our membership.
• Junior High Summer Camp: Assistance League Antelope Valley has started a pilot program providing scholarships for junior high students to go to summer camp.
• Homeless Veterans Summer and Winter Kits: Assistance League Antelope Valley assembles kits for Mental Health America, and delivers them to homeless veterans here in the Antelope Valley. The kits are distributed twice a year — once for summer, and once for winter, with different items included based on seasonal needs.
‘One and Done’ Projects
Assistance League Antelope Valley periodically takes on “one and done” projects designed to meet a specific need in the community.

About Our Preschool
As you may be aware, Assistance League Antelope Valley formerly operated a preschool that provided an affordable option for local families in need. However, as of September 2014, Assistance League Antelope Valley no longer operates the preschool and has shifted its focus to other programs and projects that benefit the community.
