Assistance League Outreach

Responding Quickly to Sudden Needs

Book DriveAssistance League of St. Louis established the Assistance League Outreach® program five years ago in response to requests from other agencies for help with specific one-time needs.  These needs often arise suddenly and cannot be met within the confines of an already stretched budget.  Although we do not provide grant monies, we do purchase goods and services requested by some agencies and organizations. Assistance League created this program with the purpose of responding quickly, so other nonprofit agencies could continue to do the wonderful work that they do in the community. During our 2016-2017 fiscal year we served 1,721 individuals with one-time critical care needs. 

Some examples:

North County Big "Jazz" Band:  Provided instruments and music books to 40 students (middle and high schools) from 5 schools

Running Rebels:  Provided a 5th grade basketball team with uniforms and shoes.

Project Ark:  Purchased 5 beds and comforter sets for two families in need. 

Lafayette Industries: Provided lunch for two workshops for 441 adult employees with disabilities.

Marian Middle School: Provided 75 students with school supplies.

St. Pius V Immigrant and Refugee Ministry:  Provided 14 students with school supplies
