As summer is moving along Assistance League of Corvallis is moving in high gear! Hygiene Help chairs, Colleen Elliott and Judy Kuenzli are beginning to fill the shelves with hygiene supplies for children & families in Benton County. These supplies are usually found in a closet at each of the schools. With schools operating from home at the beginning of the year, we will be working through the CSD Welcome Center this fall. Once details are pinned down we will share the news. Hygiene closets include laundry soap, dish soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, hand soap, shampoo, lice spray,

Assistance League members delivered supplies from our Hygiene Help philanthropy to the CSD Welcome Center on 35th street in Corvallis. A delivery of toilet paper, toothbrushes and toothpaste, feminine hygiene products, dishwashing soap, laundry soap and deodorant were passed along. It is a great way to partner with the school district to get supplies to families in need. Member Jan Baumgartner does turn some heads when she shops for that much toilet paper!
Assistance League of Corvallis has some very talented seamstresses in our organization. Most of the time they are busy sewing for our October Fundraiser, The Galleria. When the Covid virus stuck they jumped into action and began sewing masks for many different groups in Corvallis. Here are a few of our Masked Sewers...Who is behind the mask?
As our fiscal year comes to a close we are extremely pleased to announce the election of our new president, Kris Owen! She will guide us into this new Covid- year where we will continue to meet the needs of our community. Also we would like to thank our outgoing president, Carol Reeves who has navigated us through the close down. Stay tuned as we continue our philanthropies and figure out a new twist on our fundraisers for this coming year!
Assistance League of Corvallis has had a busy year while celebrating 50 Years of Community Service in Benton County! In 1967 a group of 97 women recognized the impact that a chapter of Assistance League could have in our local community. Two year later they became the 49th chapter of National Assistance League. While our meetings this year came to a halt with the virus, our AL chapter have remained busy filling clothing & shoe orders, delivering Hygiene Help supplies, and getting laundry cards out. We are busy formulating our action plan for this coming year so we can continue to serve children and their families in Benton County for another 50 years!
Operation School Bell, our signature philanthropy, has filled 845 clothing orders already this year in Benton County. Our most exciting addition to School Bell has been our new shoe source Big 5 Sporting Goods. Big 5 has bent over backwards helping our kids get a great pair of shoes that are comfortable & stylish too. So far this school year, we have had 570 kids fill their shoe order. Each time you buy something at The Galleria, attend Winter's Eve Corvallis or send in a donation, you are helping kids in your community! Thank you.
The main room of the Assistance League chapter house smelled like spring this past week, due to the bushel of fresh flowers being used by members to create hand tied bouquets. Jim Schulte, LBCC instructor of floral design, demonstrated the technique while relating tips and tricks of the floral trade, along with some anecdotal stories. Several members brought delicious snacks to share before, during, and after the bouquets were assembled. It was a fun and festive evening.
As members, we volunteer thousands of hours to our community. One of our offices is membership enrichment where we do and learn all sorts of fun things. Have you ever though about becoming a member? We are having a coffee on April 8 to tell prospective members about AL. Let us know if you are interested. [email protected]
Assistance League members recently toured the OSU Creamery though our member enrichment program. They listened to an interesting and informative talk by Robin Frojen, the Creamery manager. They tasted about 15 different cheeses that are made on site. The OSU Creamery will be celebrating their 50th anniversary this year...along with Assistance League of Corvallis! I see a celebration cheese in our future!
Nothing says LOVE like an Assistance League's teddy bear! Our Hug-a-Bear program provides cuddly bears to 13 agencies in our area, including police, fire departments, and the state police. These bears provide comfort and something to hug in traumatic situations.
Congratulations to a very special Assistance League member who received the Corvallis Senior First Citizen's award. Definitely a well deserved honor! Congrats to Candy Pierson-Charlton!
Our yearly Dental Education Classes are gearing up! It took us one hour, a whole lot of fun conversations, and a whirlwind of activities to create 1000 dental hygiene kits for the 6th graders of Benton County. We teach a 50 minute class of proper brushing & flossing. As our video says...only take care of the teeth you want to keep!
Lynn from North Albany is our 2019 Winter's Eve Corvallis Raffle winner of the Market of Choice gift card and inflatable F2 paddle board.
