ALLV has served the needs of the community for more than 30 years. We're a 100% volunteer run organization with no paid staff.
Last year, Assistance League® of Las Vegas (a 100 percent volunteer organization) served over 52,954 children in need!
Operation School Bell®, a project of Assistance League of Las Vegas, has been in existence for over 30 years! Operation School Bell served over 8,300 school children last year. At a cost of $75 per child, our experienced and creative buyers purchase stylish, durable clothing that allow the children we serve to feel more like their peers. Each child personally selects, with the help of a trained volunteer, zippered hoodie, two complete outfits, new athletic shoes, underwear, socks, book, blanket, school supplies and personal grooming products. For many of these children, this is the first time they have ever shopped for new clothes or even had their own toothbrush!
Not having appropriate clothing for school makes it extremely difficult for children to concentrate and feel good about themselves. The smiles on their faces as they leave our facility to return to their classrooms encourage us to work even harder to help more children. The need is great and your help is appreciated!
We partner with the Clark County School District in Las Vegas Nevada. They identify the children most in need and transport them to and from our facility.
AL’s Closet, a project of Assistance League of Las Vegas, provided emergency clothing and supplies to over 1700 children at 40 schools last year.
Las Vegas has the country’s fifth largest school district and has 230 Title I schools, designated as such when the majority of the students are at risk of failure and are living at or near poverty level. The children we serve all come from Title I schools.
Community Programs, a project of Assistance League of Las Vegas, supplied 26 agencies with 4320 teddy bears to comfort children experiencing a crisis last year. They also supplied 1621 layette sets that included numerous handmade baby blankets to infants born into poverty last year.
The Kids on the Block, another project of Assistance League of Las Vegas, performed skits on relevant topics such as divorce, bullying, disabilities etc. for over 6500 third grade children at 49 schools last year.
