Packing Bags for Operation School Bell

Temperatures were soaring outside, but the scene inside ALCW's new office was cool and calm as members stuffed matching coats, hats and gloves into our striking red Assistance League logo bags.

"I never expected to get this far," said co-chair Linda Gonnella. "It's phenomenal. We are so far ahead of previous years thanks to such great volunteers."

Linda added, "To be a founding member and see us grow into such a wonderful organization is great."
