Assisteens looking for freshmen

Brandon Pineda, News Editor

With a goal of nurturing and guiding students in the respectable direction, the Assisteens program is now available for freshmen. The Assisteens program is designed to uphold the concept of “All for Service and Service for All” by philanthropic work in the community and participation in a program of self-improvement. There are various opportunities for volunteer work for interested freshmen. Some examples of community service are—but not limited to—Christmas Wrapping and distribution to over 30 organizations like nursing homes and shelters, and making grooming kits for children who visit Operation School Bell each year.

Another purpose designed in the Assisteens program is to make a good model citizen. Freshmen would learn the social graces for adulthood. They will learn how to dress appropriately for any occasion, learn about the importance of punctuality, receiving invitations and sending thank you notes and much more. Participation and attendance are very important.

The Assisteens of Assistance League of Downey will be hosting in February—an informational meeting—at their League Chapter House in Downey, They would appreciate the attendance and to find out how to become a member of the Assisteens. They will develop lifelong friendships as they learn the importance of “All for Service and Service for All”.
