ACTION! Week is a nationwide endeavor by Assistance League to help children succeed in school by sponsoring a literacy enrichment program. This year, ACTION! Week is scheduled for February 22-26, 2021.
Assistance League® of Boise reached out to district school coordinators and they identified a need for suitable reading material for struggling readers who are older, adolescents and young adults. For 2021, our ACTION! Week project will provide sets of Sound Out books for schools in Ada and Canyon County. The books are unique in that they are chapter books for remedial level readers, English as a Second Language readers, etc. in upper grades with age-appropriate content. Schools with the greatest need have been selected by local school coordinators. Our hope is to be able to purchase one set for each Title 1 APS elementary school in Ada and Canyon County, and more if possible. Distribution will be in early March when the donation period has been completed and the books sets have been ordered. Please donateto help us meet our $5000 goal to purchase 33 sets.
