Assistance League of Phoenix, a nonprofit organization that has been serving children and families in the Phoenix area for more than 50 years, is looking for volunteers that desire personal growth, leadership opportunities, and friendship.

ALP provides school clothing, books and supplies for over 7,500 children annually through its Operation School Bell program and helps thousands more with literacy materials, crisis teddy bears, and newborn necessities for infants born into poverty.

An informational coffee will be held 10 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 22, as part of an ongoing commitment to introduce the organization to individuals in the community. Members set their own volunteer schedule, and many volunteer opportunities are available, including outfitting school children with new clothes, distributing children’s books, preparing layettes for newborns, or sewing accessories on stuffed bears.

January’s meeting will be held at the Philanthropic Center, 9224 N. 5th St. Interested individuals should contact Bobbie at 602-944-7636 or e-mail alpvolunteer@aol.com for further information.

Assistance League is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that is an equal opportunity, volunteer-driven organization. Membership is open to anyone without regard to age, race, color, gender, religion, or national origin.
