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 to benefit
children and adults in the San Antonio area.
Our eight philanthropic programs are funded by Thrift House revenues, fundraisers, and contributions from individual donors, foundations, and grants. In 2013-2014, our members gave 71,360 volunteer hours (an estimated $1,591,328 in gifts of service) and served 64,589 residents, primarily children.
Our Thrift House, located at 2611 West Avenue, is our major source of funds. It is an active resale shop offering a wide variety of items
to our customers. We accept donated items, which are tax deductible, Monday through Saturday. The Thrift House is open for business Tuesday through Saturday. The Thrift House and each of our eight philanthropic programs are staffed by volunteers.
The Assistance League of San Antonio is committed to serving
the needs of this community. We do this with enthusiasm and the satisfaction that comes from observing joy on the faces of those whom we are able to help.
