Assistance League of Santa Clarita, organized in 1989 by local women, was chartered in 1993 and has grown to 160 members. A chapter of National Assistance League, it is a
nonprofit, nonpolitical, nonsectarian and IRS 501(c)(3) service organization. Funds raised from Sunset in the Vineyard benefit Assistance League programs exclusively in the Santa Clarita Valley. Our signature program, “Operation School Bell®” supplies new clothing and shoes, to school children in need. We are currently holding our shopping event for these students, who are referred by school district personnel. We assisted more than 1,800 children last year and have expanded the program to the Junior High level.
Join us in increasing our philanthropic efforts by supporting Sunset in the Vineyard.
