Assistance League® of Conejo Valley is celebrating its 25th Anniversary of giving back to the community.
In 1995 several women formed a group to help local, at-risk children and adults. Recognized as a Guild in 1995, they attained full status in 2000 as a chapter of the national nonprofit organization, Assistance League®. The chapter is now a thriving group of 127 women, 9 community volunteers, and 46 Assisteens®, their youth auxiliary.
Assistance League of Conejo Valley opened a Thrift Shop in Thousand Oaks in 2012. Due to its success,
revenue from the shop is the chapter’s primary source of funding to support nine philanthropic programs benefitting eight communities in Ventura County. Additional income from grants, tributes, perpetual fundraising, and other donations also help fund the programs.
Last year, the members volunteered 32,000 hours and touched the lives of over 18,000 people in the Conejo Valley and surrounding area. Its philanthropic programs returned almost $280,000 to the communities it serves. As the need continues to grow, it is committed to exploring new programs to meet
ing those needs.
The chapter remains dedicated to its mission of transforming the lives of children and adults through community programs. To make a donation to support these philanthropic programs or to inquire about becoming a member, visit the website at alconejovalley.org.
