Assistance League of Rancho San Dieguito hosts shopping event for families in need


On Feb. 12 and 19, the Assistance League of Rancho San Dieguito hosted a shopping event at Marshall’s store in Solana Beach for children from low-income families to help enable children’s success in school.

League members bought shoes for the 4-year-olds that they tutor each week at St. Leo’s Church in Solana Beach. This school is managed by Easter Seals and provides 3-4-year-olds of underserved families with a preschool program. The Assistance League volunteers tutor in English and math through games and English conversation. The shoe shopping event is the chapter’s first to be held in Solana Beach and has been funded through a grant from the Solana Beach City Council.
