We welcome new volunteers.
Assistance League of Chicagoland West welcomes all volunteers committed to making a difference in people’s lives. Some of our members have just moved to the area, while others are longtime residents. All volunteer because it gives them a wonderful opportunity to connect with the community in a meaningful way.
Make a difference for yourself and others.
Assistance League of Chicagoland West members participate in at least one resource development project and one philanthropic project each year; all members are encouraged to attend chapter meetings on a regular basis. Chapter meetings are generally held on the 4th Wednesday of the month at our office. We offer a variety of opportunities for involvement to fit the availability, interests, and skills of each member.
Because each Assistance League chapter is responsible for raising all the funds necessary to pay for its philanthropic programs, members are asked to make the following financial commitment:
· Annual Dues - $75.00
· Purchase of 1 (one) ticket to our signature fundraiser, Books & Brunch
· Provide a minimum of $300.00 in solicited/donated goods, services, advertisements, or cash to support Books & Brunch
"I am so glad I became a part of Assistance League. It is such a pleasure to work with such smart, dedicated women, many of whom have become dear friends. I love knowing that I am helping people in my community and when I see the smiling face of a child who has just received a new coat in a color she loves, it just makes my day.” Member Meg Cooper
