President's Message

Patti Brown 2017-2018 _280H_70.jpg

2017 marks Assistance League of Long Beach’s 77th year of service to the children and adults of Long Beach and the surrounding communities.  I am humbled to have been chosen to be president of an organization that does so much good for so many people. I follow in the footsteps of many talented women who have served as President of Assistance League of Long Beach.

I have chosen my theme “Beautiful Hearts Inspire Others” to celebrate our members’ commitment to our mission. Chapter members and the four auxiliaries – Rick Rackers, CAMEO, Las Hermanas, and Assisteens – are dedicated to assessing community needs and directing our services to benefit the community.

Nearly 850 members volunteer their time and talents to 10 philanthropic programs that have a positive impact on our community. We delight at the faces of the nearly 9,000 children we clothe for Operation School Bell; the smiles of the 1,000 children who are in various stages of orthodontic treatment . . .
