An introductory coffee on Monday, Oct. 1, 2012 at 10 a.m. will kick off the organization’s semi-annual membership recruitment. The informal event will offer an opportunity to meet several active members and will introduce the organization’s new executive director, Aimee Runyon.

Assistance League is an equal-opportunity volunteer-driven organization, and membership is open to anyone without regard to age, race, color, gender, religion, or national origin.
Members set their own volunteer schedule, and many volunteer opportunities are available. New members can become involved in outfitting school children with new clothes, distributing children’s books, evaluating scholarship recipients, preparing layettes for newborns, or sewing accessories on stuffed bears. Assistance League’s largest program, Operation School Bell®, provides new school clothing for children in need at over 60 Title I elementary schools in the Phoenix area.
In addition, Assistance League of Phoenix operates a Thrift Shop, with the proceeds of all donations going back into the community. Volunteers can find their niche working on the sales floor or in the workroom preparing items for sale.
The Thrift Shop is located at 7044 North 7th Street in central Phoenix. Regular hours of operation for the Thrift Shop are Tuesday-Friday 9:30 – 3:30 and Saturday 9:30-1:30.
