We are pleased to announce our September Referral Rewards Partner is Assistance League of SW Washington. Since 2003 this all-volunteer nonprofit organization has been dedicated to providing various programs and services to enrich and improve the quality of life in our community, specifically our children. There is 55+ volunteers in the organization that are responsible for making a positive impact in the lives of thousands of children and families throughout Clark County.
As a part of their philanthropy, Assistance League of SW Washington provides foster children, ages 10-18, with new clothing and shoes, both as they enter the system and each September when they get to experience their own “back to school” shopping. During the past year, Assistance League of SW Washington has distributed over 3,000 clothing and personal hygiene items to children in need at 25 local schools.
In addition to providing clothing to children in need, there are several other key programs that the Assistance League of SW Washington provides including:
Share a Bear Program: A new program beginning in 2020-2021, local first responders will be supplied with soft and cuddly teddy bears to be given to children that have experienced a traumatic and scary situation.
Assault Survivor Kits: Kits are donated to three local hospitals for survivors of assault. The kits are stocked with clothing and hygiene products that enable the survivor to freshen up and discard their old clothes and help begin the healing process.
My Life Story Books: Volunteers create homemade, fabric covered binders that become memory albums for children in foster care as they move through the system and towards adoption. These books hold special memories, personal history, records, and letters. Last year, 170 My Life Story Books were provided to children in the foster care system.
Operation School Bell: 25 local schools are supplied with clothing and shoes and school supplies for elementary students in need.
We encourage you to learn more about the tremendous programs that are offered by the Assistance League of SW Washington by watching the below video (hyperlinked in E-Newletter) and visiting their website at www.assistanceleague.org/southwest-Washington.
During the month of September, every referral received by our team at Davidson & Associates Insurance for a free, no obligation insurance quote will fund a $25 donation that will go directly to the programs that provide support for our local families.
