Non-Profit Spotlight: Assistance League of Temecula Valley

Our community is full of incredible people and organizations, out making a difference for others! In this month’s Non-Profit Spotlight we’d like to recognize the Assistance League of Temecula Valley!

Assistance League of Temecula Valley is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization that transforms lives and strengthens our communities through philanthropic programs in Southwest Riverside County.  They run through the strength and support of approximately 200 volunteers! The initial goal of ALTV was to provide local assistance to children and families living in poverty. Although the core goal has remained consistent over their more than 30 years of service, the organization continually works with community partners to determine the needs of the community and to adjust and broaden their service goals as necessary. Adjusting to the impact of COVID-19 on local disadvantaged families has resulted in creative solutions needed to provide substantial services to recipients.

COVID has not only affected their fundraising ability but has also changed how they deliver services. The ALTV Thrift Shop is their main fundraiser, but due to COVID they were required to close the for several months. The shop has now reopened, but on a very limited basis. ALTV continues to develop alternative methods of delivering services after the closure of schools.

Yet another way that ALTV is cultivating change in communities is with their support of a teen auxiliary, Assisteens! With more than 50 members, the Assisteens provides volunteer opportunities for youth in grades 7 through 12. They learn to develop a sense of community and personal responsibility, as well as self reliance, poise, public speaking and leadership skills.

For the month of March 2021 Stromsoe Insurance will donate $21 to Assistance League of Temecula Valley for every referral that comes to our team!
