The Community Assistance League is proud to announce that 49 scholarships were awarded to students this year — the most ever given by one organization.

“CAL is the most generous and consistent group with whom we work,” SHS counselor Jeralyn Mire said. “I marvel at their commitment to our school through their scholarship and grants programs.”

CAL is also unique that in addition to high school graduates they offer renewal scholarships to college students.

CAL contributes the profits from their shop, Bizarre Bazaar, directly back into Bonner County via grants and scholarships. The shop thrives from the enthusiastic support of people who shop there and those who donate their gently used items. This allows CAL volunteers to contribute financially to many local area schools, organizations, and services that enhance the quality of life of many residents of Bonner County.
