What We’re Thankful For

Every year at Thanksgiving, we gather with our families and friends and give thanks.

At Assistance League of Irvine, we’re thankful for our SHOPPERS and our SUPPORTERS.

Our SHOPPERS are the people who are waiting in line on Wednesday morning at 10 am when we open our door, eager to see what’s new in the thrift shop this week. They’re the people who know our volunteers by name and think of us as their friends. They’re people who shop with us to make their paycheck go a little bit further, and those who buy secondhand because they’re concerned about the environment. All these shoppers help us raise the money we need for our philanthropic programs in Irvine.

But while the thrift shop provides a lot of our income, we also rely on our SUPPORTERS. They’re the people – and organizations – who donate money and time so that we can fully fund our programs. Our donors give us the means to go that extra mile for Operation School Bell, Young Masters, Irvine Valley College scholarships, and our other programs.

We’re thrilled when our shoppers become supporters, and vice versa! Either way, THANKS for what you give to ALI.
