Assistance League North Coast (ALNC) is dedicated to serving the needs, primarily of disadvantaged children, in the communities of Carlsbad, Oceanside and Vista with the goal of providing a positive starting point for academic success. Ensuring that school age children who live below the poverty line can attend school with adequate clothing, shoes, school materials, books and other supplies gives them a positive starting point for learning and academic success. A nonprofit volunteer organization, ALNC is composed of 120 dedicated members who identify, develop, implement, and fund philanthropic programs to serve the unmet needs of children in our community. We are a dynamic philanthropic presence, with membership growing along with requests for expanded programs to serve many needs.
Our goal is to ensure that school age children who are living below the poverty line can attend school with adequate school clothing, shoes, school supplies, books, supplies and services. Five major accomplishments from the last fiscal year are: 1. Funded and coordinated purchase of 1,684 pairs of school shoes and socks (6 pairs per child) for children living in poverty. The shoes and socks cost a total of $32,200. 2. Purchased and provided clothing for school: school uniforms for 791 children in Oceanside, Emergency Clothing Kits to 35 elementary schools in Oceanside, Vista, and Carlsbad Unified School Districts, and a year's worth of clothing for 52 New Haven Boys who are Wards of the Court. The four programs totaled $39,000. 3. Promoted literacy by organizing the purchase of library books and a reading incentive program: The "I Love to Read" reading incentive program was funded for seven elementary schools in Vista and Oceanside which provided over 5,000 books as well as t-shirts and other prizes. By using a grant that gives ALNC books for children to keep, this program's cost was only $7,200. Purchased library books for five high poverty schools for $7,500. 4. Started a Teen Partners Program to encourage community service. The Teen Partners help ALNC members with our existing projects and will work on other community service projects they select. Their hours will supplement our members yearly contribution of over 12,000 hours of community service. 5. Maintained and improved our ability to fund our programs despite the recession.
