Our building was paid off within three years of construction. • Assistance League of Atlanta consistently returns over 75 percent of its income to the community. • We draw strength from being part of a national organization that has 26,000 volunteers in 122 cities across the country. • Nationally, 1.2 million people are served each year by Assistance League, including 270,000 children who receive school clothing through Operation School Bell.
  8. 8. 2010 Challenges • Requests for help for children from social workers and schools are at an all time high. • With existing funding, we are limited as to the scope of the support that we can provide area schools. • We are working to keep out thrift shop among the best in the area to keep our income stream constant. • We look to grow our programs with being mindful of space as our facility is at capacity.
