If the Crown Fit’s …

The crown certainly “fits” for the outstanding members of the Assistance League of Everett’s, Kitty Young Auxiliary.  This last April and many prior years before I have had the honor and great pleasure of working with so many woman who dedicate their time and talents to making their “April Affair Tea” and fashion show a great success with all proceed going to Assistance League of Everett’s Operation School Bell.  Each table at the tea is decorated with the members theme of choice – this year I went with “If the Crown Fit’s” it seemed fitting considering all the time and hard work that goes into making this tea a huge success!

I have been a member of the Assistance League of Everett since the age of 12. My mother was an active member since the early 80’s and encouraged we to volunteer at a young age.  Volunteering has been a passion of mine.  I encourage anyone who has the desire to give back to their community to find a non-profit group in their community to join. Here is what the Assistance League is all about. You just might want to check us out!

Assistance League of Everett is an all-volunteer, nonprofit, 501(c)(3), Federal Tax I.D. No. 91-6069747, organization dedicated to helping those in need within our community, Snohomish County, Washington.

We are one of more than 120 local chapters and guilds within a national network, National Assistance League.  Through our commitment to hands-on action, nationwide Assistance League volunteers touched the lives of over 1.4 million children, seniors, families and others in need this past year. Combined, we returned an astounding $35 million to communities across the United States.

Our chapter was founded in 1965 and currently has more than 300 members.  Dedicated volunteers donated over 43,700 volunteer hours  this past year. An all-volunteer, nonprofit, nonpolitical, nonsecular organization.  Comprised of more than 300 member volunteers plus numerous community volunteers. In addition to the main chapter membership there are two auxiliary organizations, Kitty Young Auxiliary and Assisteens® Auxiliary.

We manage several Community Outreach Programs that are focused on lending a helping hand to those in need.  Our largest program, Operation School Bell, gives children a complete new wardrobe of school clothing.  Other programs provide financial aid to graduating high school seniors, scholarships to Everett Community College students, clothing and hygiene kits for assault victims, teddy bears for children and adults who are victims of assault or domestic violence, clothing to adults re-entering the workplace and more.
