Sunshine Boxes - Weekend Food for children

Join us in making a difference to hungry schoolchildren.
Each week, thousands of schoolchildren lack food over the weekend and the numbers continue to rise. Assistance League is asking for your help to provide 400 Sunshine Boxes of weekend food per month.  At the cost of $13, each Sunshine Box is filled with milk, cereal, soup, pasta, and other nutritious food. All donations, large and small, will bring sunshine into these children’s weekend, bring smiles to small faces, and truly make a difference. 

Thank you for joining us to help these children  today, who will grow to be leaders tomorrow.  

Assistance League of Diablo Valley is one of more than 120 chapters of Assistance League, a national nonprofit organization that puts caring and commitment into action. In 2019-2020 over 450 dedicated member volunteers provided school clothes to 4,317 children in need,  performed educational puppet shows,  read monthly and provided reading support to second graders,  engaged schoolchildren in art units, donated food boxes, awarded scholarships to 35 young adults and made reassurance phone calls to homebound clients in Contra Costa County, California.

Due to Government regulations, we can only accept donations from California residents.
