LOOKING FOR A WAY TO GIVE BACK?

Here’s a quote from one of my favorite singer/songwriters, Carole King:

“Good people help their neighbors in communities every day. Whether through military service, political activism, volunteering at a school, hospital, or library, or simply through quotidian acts of kindness, each of us has something to contribute to improve another person’s life.” (from Carole King’s autobiography, A Natural Woman)

 If you’re reading this blog, you’re familiar with the Assistance League of Irvine and what we do to help our community. But have you ever thought about joining us? We currently have 118 members, with more joining us every month. We have several levels of membership or volunteer opportunities, that can accommodate just about anyone’s schedule. Our members have diverse backgrounds and interests, and along with our philanthropic work, we have a LOT of fun!

If you’re looking for a way to give back to your community, or want to expand your activities and your circle of friends, stop by our thrift shop at 2452 Alton (between Jamboree and Von Karman) and fill out a membership interest form. You can also email us at: membership@irvine.assistanceleague.org. Our membership chair will call you and meet with you to give you more information about ALI. We’d love to have you join us!

April 27th 6am – April 28 12pm – YOU CAN GIVE WHERE YOUR HEART LIVES

Blog readers, are you ready for the 22nd Annual IHeart OC Giving Day? This is the one time a year in a 30-hour period you can give back and it’s so easy!

April 27th 6am – April 28 12pm – YOU CAN GIVE WHERE YOUR HEART LIVES.

Our thrift shop supports about 80% of our budget. The rest has to come from donations. And the IHeartOC Giving Day is the easiest possible way to make a donation to Assistance League of Irvine. Just click on this link to the IHeartOC website and it will automatically take you to the web page where you can make a tax-deductible donation to Assistance League of Irvine.

ALL the money ALI raises supports our programs right here in Irvine. School clothing, school supplies, and eyeglasses for needy children, scholarships for single parents and high school seniors planning to attend Irvine Valley College, help for the Human Options shelter, our annual Young Masters art show, our Assisteens auxiliary that builds character and leadership skills in 7th grade to 12th grade students through volunteer activities, and our incredible thrift shop – all of these directly affect the lives of Irvine families. AND WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT TO CONTINUE ALL THESE WONDERFUL PROGRAMS.

We’re not an organization that sends you mailers every month asking for donations. We don’t have a “pledge week.” But we’re asking for your donation in any amount, during the IHeartOC campaign. Thank you for supporting us!
