Your support helps Kitty Young Auxiliary aid county’s youths

On behalf of Kitty Young Auxiliary (a part of Assistance League of Everett), we would like to thank all the community members who attended the Assistance League Thrift Shop’s Holiday Pop-Up event in November and December. These wonderful individuals supported not only Assistance League of Everett, but also our auxiliary by purchasing raffle tickets for our auxiliary’s annual fundraiser. Thanks to all of you, we raised nearly $5,000 which will benefit our philanthropic programs.

Kitty Young Auxiliary supports the Index School District by providing swimming lessons to its students. This is vitally important when you live along a fast-moving river. We also provide support to Northwest Regional Learning Center located in Arlington, and Crossroads High School and Open Doors Academy, both located in Granite Falls. These programs assist young adults in obtaining a high school education.

Some students may be homeless or sleep on couches in friends’ homes. Some may have young children while others have overcome drug abuse. Kitty Young Auxiliary provides funds to assist these students with graduation costs and even provides a location, food and support for Northwest Regional Learning Center’s graduation ceremony! We donate backpacks and sweats to Cocoon House during Assistance League of Everett’s semi-annual pop-up shop events for homeless youth.

If that doesn’t seem like enough, Kitty Young members provide funds to support Assistance League’s Operation School Bell which provides new clothing to low income children throughout Snohomish County.

Again, while $5,000 may not be a lot of money to some, it allows us to help the youth of our county. Because of the community’s support, we are helping to ensure as many youths have an opportunity for success as possible!

If you are interested in joining either Kitty Young Auxiliary or Assistance League of Everett, please see our website at and then click on Volunteer.

Again, thank you for your continued support of our county’s young people.
