Assistance League of Stockton is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to serving the community through philanthropic programs such as Operation School Bell®, which annually clothes over 1,200 school children in need. Other programs include:
- The Kids on the Block - puppet shows to teach tolerance for those who are different, and how to be safe at both home and school
- Book Buddies - volunteers visit 2nd grade classes to work on basic phonics and listen to struggling readers read out-loud
- Comfort Kits - backpacks filled with age and gender appropriate clothing, hygiene and ‘comfort items’, which are given to Child Protective Services for distribution to children entering Foster Care; they also provide adult Comfort Kits for assault survivors at the County Hospital.
Programs are largely funded through the proceeds from their thrift shop. The Assistance League of Stockton maintains a thrift shop with clothing and other household items at 1319 East Harding Way, Stockton.
