Assistance League of Capistrano Valley

by Don Kindred |

Sept 17, 2021 Assistance League® of Capistrano Valley (ALCV) celebrates their 40th anniversary supporting children and families in our local community. Since the charter’s founding in 1980, ALCV has returned $5.3 million back to the community. As an all-volunteer nonprofit organization their mission is to transform the lives of children through innovative philanthropic community programs. “The volunteers at the Assistance League of Capistrano Valley have contributed to the future of young people from our city for over 40 years,” said Kathleen Ward, Mayor of San Clemente. “It is an honor to congratulate ALCV on their anniversary. Thank you for your commitment and dedication to giving children greater opportunities.”

Assistance League of Capistrano Valley is a chapter of Assistance League®, a 501(c)(3) non-profit volunteer organization. ALCV meets the needs of children from the Capistrano Unified School District and for military families at Camp Pendleton. They also provided scholarships through the I.N.S.P.I.R.E. program to single parents attending Saddleback College to reward their hard work while supporting their academic journey. With over 200 volunteers, they use proceeds raised from donated items at the Bargain Box thrift store in San Clemente and Step Up For Kids walk-a-thon in November to fund our 6 philanthropies focusing on scholarships, literacy and essential needs within our community. Last year they returned over $101,000 back into the local community. For more information visit them at
