Our chapter, Assistance League of San Antonio, is one of 120 Assistance League chapters located throughout the United States. We are a nonprofit organization with over 450 volunteer members, dedicated to developing and implementing programs that benefit children and adults in the San Antonio community.
Our eight philanthropic programs are funded by Thrift House revenues, fundraisers, and contributions from individual donors, foundations, and grants. In 2014-2015, our members gave 70,121 volunteer hours (which is an estimated $1,617,691.40 in gifts of service) and served 70,239 residents who were primarily children.
Our Thrift House, located at 2611 West Avenue, is our major source of funding. It is an active resale shop offering a wide variety of gently used items to our customers. We are open for business Tuesday through Saturday, and we accept donated items, which are tax deductible, Monday through Saturday. The Thrift House and each of our eight philanthropic programs are staffed completely by our all-volunteer membership, who contribute countless hours of service to the San Antonio community.
The Assistance League of San Antonio is committed to serving the needs of this area, and we do so with enthusiasm, dedication, and the satisfaction that comes from observing joy on the faces of those whom we are able to help.
