With 50 years under her belt as a volun-teer in San Mateo County’s AssistanceLeague, Laura Sale is being honored with ascholarship under her name.Sale, 87, began working with the groupin her mid-30s and the scholarship in hername will go to young women returningto education after time off. For the past 10years, it’s been her pet project to helpwomen complete their community collegedegrees.“It’s so rewarding to see how happythey are,” said Sale, who lives inBurlingame Hills. “I was surprised andoverwhelmed with the award.”The local Assistance League sends twowomen to each of the three communitycolleges in the area with its scholarship.Sale said she never thought her member-ship would extend for so many years. “I don’t think anyone ever looks ahead50 years,” said Sale, who is married withtwo sons, six grandchildren and fourgreat-grandchildren. “My whole familygot involved and it was a beautiful organ-ization. We could do what we really feltwas important in the community.” For her work, she was honored by U.S.Rep. Jackie Speier, D-San Mateo, andreceived 50 roses to mark her years as avolunteer.One such important thing was estab-lishing Operation School Bell, the orga-nization’s largest initiative, during herpresidency in 1970. This program, fund-ed mostly from proceeds from theTurnstyle Thrift Shop in downtown SanMateo, provides free and new clothing toneedy students in grades K-7 in a total of 21 schools from Daly City to East PaloAlto.“There were two outstanding things thathappened during my time here,” she said.“One was signing the first contract forOperation School Bell [with localschools]. The other was securing a chapterhouse. At the time, the area was filled withwomen’s volunteer organizations that didnothing but raise money.”The difference for Assistance League,and what explains its longevity, is thefact the volunteers get to be hands-onwith where the money goes, Sale said.“It’s a good thing to have volunteers,”she said. “They’re worth more than theirweight in gold.” Still, the Assistance League has evolvedover the years, Sale said. “It has changed because the world haschanged,” said Sale, who worked as a pub-lisher for a time, but was a housewife formost of her life. “Most members have hadcareers outside of the home.”The group is still doing well and mem-bership is up, said Sale, who went toCollege of William & Mary in Virginiabefore transferring to University of California at Los Angeles.“It’s rewarding to see we’re taking upmore members,” she said.
