The Gilroy Assistance League: A Long History of Friendship and Dedication to Children Written By Amy McElroy Since 1959, the Gilroy Assistance League (GALs) has been an organization of hard-working women helping children. The non-profit originally began as the Children’s Home Society, assisting young women and their babies through pregnancy and the adoption process. As community needs changed, GALs changed along with it—now raising funds through the Home and Garden Tour and other events to support the needs of local children in a myriad of ways. 52 GILROY • MOR GAN HILL • SAN MARTIN MARCH/APRIL 2017
