Assistance League of Southwest Washington Philanthropic Programs

Operation School Bell®
                          We provide new clothing and literacy supplies to children in need in four Clark County School Districts – Vancouver, Evergreen, Washougal and Woodland.  Assistance League of Southwest Washington members serve as liaisons with the schools, working with staff to identify needs, purchasing the garments and supplies, delivering them as requested.
In partnership with the Department of Social and Health Services, our "JUST because..." program provides two sets of new clothing to children ages 10-18 when they are placed in foster care.
Assault Survivor Kit
We provide clothing and hygiene kits for survivors of assault, both women and children, who arrive at the emergency rooms of PeaceHealth Southwest Washington Medical Center (Vancouver), Legacy Salmon Creek Hospital (Vancouver) and PeaceHealth St John's Hospital (Longview).

My Life Story Books
We create handmade, fabric-covered binders that become memory albums for children in foster care as they move within the system or toward adoption.  In the books they can record their personal history, filling them with photographs, records and letters.
Children's Opportunities & Potential
We work with Innovative Services Northwest to help children who have disabilities or other disadvantages reach their potential.  We provide financial scholarships, program supplies and skilled volunteer help in classrooms and therapeutic settings.
