Assisteens assemble 375 snack packs for the chapter's Receiving Center Backpacks philanthropic program. Receiving Centers provide a safe, comfortable environment for children in crisis until they can be placed with a foster family. The snack packs and backpacks are intended to provide some comfort in knowing that someone cares.

Children's Holiday Parties

Assisteens host parties for children who are in need and at risk in Contra Costa County, CA. In December, guests are invited to enjoy games, cookie decorating, face painting, coloring, and a pizza party. Santa Claus arrives and presents gifts selected from each child's wish list. At the spring holiday party, the Big Bunny hosts an egg hunt. The parties and gifts are made possible by Assisteens' fundraising activities.
