Several members of Assistance League met with Mayor John Gates October 2, 2018 and were presented with a Proclamation proclaiming the week of Oct. 7 – 13, 2018, as Assistance League of Greeley’s 45th Anniversary Celebration Week in the City of Greeley. It urged all citizens to visit the Bargain Box at 1706 9th Street to shop and learn more about their philanthropic endeavors and how they benefit our community.

Warm Up Weld provides new blankets to those in need throughout Weld County; Operation School Bell provides school uniforms to seven Title One Schools; Single Parent Scholarships provides funding for single parents to attend Aims or UNC; Assault Survivor Kits provides new clothing to men, women, and children who are victims of assault; Color Me Weld, provides activity books and markers to children in the hospital; and File of Life is a program that provides free medical information kits to all citizens of the County.
