Who We Are

Caring & commitment in action

The ASSISTANCE LEAGUE® of Saddleback Valley is a non-profit volunteer organization that puts caring and commitment into action by providing services to children, families, and the elderly in the
Saddleback Valley communities.

We are committed to improving our local community through hands on involvement and innovative philanthropic programs.

Our History

founding chapter was formed in 1919 by Anne Banning and developed as an outgrowth of the Red Cross Shops established in World War I.

It became the first nonprofit, nonpolitical, nonsectarian organization begun in the West to recognize the potential of volunteers in helping those less fortunate to a better, more meaningful life.


Assistance League® of Saddleback Valley will be celebrating 28 years of giving back to the community at their annual Christmas Tree Luncheon – “Making Spirits Bright” All proceeds from the event will benefit the chapter’s eight philanthropic programs
