Assistance League of Glendale – ALG ¬– recently received a $5,000 check from Gary Guemiksizian, general manager of Toyota of Glendale, and the club members anticipate receiving a second check from the Toyota Corporation matching the first.
Guemiksizian explained that donations were given to two Glendale non-profits that were chosen by drawing names from a hat. The names being considered were approved as non-profits by Toyota Corporate and ALG was lucky to be chosen. ALG is noted as a GuideStar gold transparency non-profit. Not only is ALG transparent in its philanthropies but the non-profit must also have 100% donations from its Appeals Campaign from members. Assistance League philanthropies include Operation School Bell, Senior Neighborhood Fellowship, scholarships, Authors & Illustrators, Ascencia baskets and vocational training.
To learn more about ALG, call president Carol Svatora at (586) 202-8764 or stop by its second hand shop Thrift Alley at 314 E. Harvard St. It’s open Wednesdays thru Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
