Assistance League Santa Clarita Holds Mini Conference

by | Apr 26, 2018 | Community

Benefiting families; transforming lives. Assistance League member/volunteers work to do this every day. The question is, how can we do this better, and have our philanthropic programs serve more people?
On March 23, our members came together for a mini conference at College of the Canyons. The purpose was to review what we have done since the chapter was formed in 1989, and where should we be going in order to achieve our goals. Creative ideas and problem solving were the shared topics.
Our keynote speaker was Eva Carter. She spoke about as we fundraise, it is necessary to seek both financial and moral support from our community. Suzanne Nosworthy, past National Assistance League President, emphasized the importance of strong volunteerism in society. The way volunteerism looks may change through the generations and may be approached differently as society evolves. One thought she shared was, “Ask me to do anything, just don’t pay me.”
A panel discussion composed of representatives of organizations that receive services from our programs, and some community partners who donate so those services are possible was very insightful and informative. We were assured that our programs are truly benefitting many. A revitalized membership will explore ideas and potential new programs to help the Santa Clarita community meet its changing needs.
Assistance League Santa Clarita is a 100 percent volunteer organization that develops and implements programs to make a difference in the lives of families in our community.
Our resale store is located at 24364 Main Street in downtown Newhall. For more information visit www.assistanceleaguesantaclarita.org
