Clear Creek ISD calls Assistance League volunteers"champions"
Clothing nearly 2,000 children for school through Operation School Bell, making prom dreams come true for financially-challenged seniors, and providing scholarships for children to attend UHCL's Summer Kids-U Camp are just a few of the reasons Assistance League of the Bay Area was recently named Clear Creek ISD's 2011 Community Partner of the Year.
"I am so moved by the compassion and sensitivity with which these champions care for our students," Dr. Steven Ebell, CCISD Deputy Superintendent of Curriculum & Instruction, told a crowd at the school district's annual Volunteer and Partnership Breakfast held at the Nassau Bay Hilton last week.
Ebell told the audience the Assistance League, which is made up of about 200 volunteer members, supports these programs--and more--through its own fundraising initiatives, including its annual fundraiser, FEAST: Food, Fun and Philanthropy, held in April, and the sale of its cookbooks, Settings on the Dock of the Bay and Settings Sunrise to Sunset. The organization also depends on proceeds from the Assistance League Resale Shop, located at 100 E. NASA Parkway, Suite 80, in Webster.
