SIZE 5 1/2
Assistance League of Bellingham’s Thrift & Gift Shop has just acquired a special donation of size 5 1/2 footwear.
The collection includes dressy and casual shoes, and a couple of pairs of great boots! This is a very limited collection of both new and pre-worn foot wear which we have paired with some terrific coordinating handbags and scarves.
This is a special offering of a hard to find size that will not last long. So…all you gals with the “tiny toes”…hurry into the ALB shop this week and stock up before they are gone!
The Thrift & Gift Shop is located at 2817 Meridian Street, Bellingham, WA 98225. We are open from Tuesday-Saturday, 10 am – 5 pm.

GuideStar’s mission is to revolutionize philanthropy that advances transparency, enables users to make better decisions, and encourages charitable giving. Non-profit organizations, like Assistance League of Bellingham, submit data about their organization – our mission, legitimacy, impact, reputation, finances, IRS forms, programs, governance and so much more. There are three levels of transparency – bronze, silver and gold, gold being the highest level.
Individuals and groups who wish to donate money to an organization can look at information provided by GuideStar, and make better decisions about the organization’s transparency and how they spend the money they make. Organizations who offer grants often use information from GuideStar.

Our Operation School Bell program has expanded to include homeless high school students. In April of 2015, our chapter amended their OSB program to include the most vulnerable students in public schools.
Beginning in the school year 2015-16, “Teen Team” will be awarding vouchers worth $125 to needy students in high school to purchase clothing and shoes. We are very excited to be able to help these students who have expressed a desire to graduate from high school under adverse circumstances!
In the 2014-2015 school year, 1540 elementary and middle school children in need were clothed in our Operation School Bell program. Volunteers from the Assistance League and Target were on hand to help students shop during specially arranged shopping events at the Bellis Fair Target Store. The smiles on the faces of these kids as they shop with their parents and pick out cute clothes is so heart warming. And, the folks at Target could not have been more accommodating.
Some of their employees have even volunteered to stay after their regular shifts to help at the check stands or on the floor. Pretty amazing!
