Assistance League Greater Collin County

Volunteers transforming lives through community programs since 1998

Caring in Action

Assistance League of Greater Collin County (ALGCC) is committed to long-term programs and activities serving individuals in need in our community. The Caring in Action Program and ALGCC members share their time and talents to support:


Caring for Kids…

A variety of handcrafted items are lovingly made to bring comfort and smiles to patients at Children’s Medical Center Plano. The items made include colorful pillowcases and blankets, loveys, snuggles pillows, and knitted or crocheted mini blankets.

Colorful, fun activity kits are designed and assembled to bring cheer and engagement for hospitalized children and young teen patients. The packets are delivered quarterly to Children’s Medical Center Plano.

Caring for the Homeless/Housing Insecure…

We purchase and collect donations of personal hygiene items for use at the Streetside Showers mobile shower facilities. Shampoo, soap, deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste, and combs are delivered to support their efforts. Our volunteers also handcraft water-resistant sleeping mats for distribution by Streetside Showers to those who need a barrier between themselves and the cold, hard ground.

ALGCC volunteers serve at Hope Restored Missions in Plano several days of each week to sort and organize clothing and other donations. We also assemble personal hygiene kits and food packets and periodically supplement the clothing, hygiene items, and food supplies available for distribution. Our volunteers help to extend the time and resources of the Hope Restored Missions team as they provide emergency and case management services to the homeless and housing insecure in Collin County.

Caring for Seniors…

ALGCC treasures its relationship with Baybrooke Village Care & Rehab Center in McKinney. Volunteers have a standing commitment to Bingo games with prizes, supply pumpkins for halloween decorating and other activity supplies, holiday stockings with treats, and a visit for caroling in December. Residents at Baybrooke are there for rehabilitation, assisted living, or skilled nursing and our goal at ALGCC is to make them feel seen, cared for and entertained.
