(Victor Valley)– On March 10, volunteers from the Assistance League of Victor Valley hosted school librarians, principals, and teachers in celebration of the “Legacy of Literacy” program. The recipients, who included 26 schools, a public library, and a family center, were welcomed at this presentation to receive boxes of books, enjoy refreshments, and hear an inspiring talk from Karen Post, a Sandia Academy teacher. We are grateful for the time they took out of their busy schedules to come out and participate in this wonderful program.
In addition, the Apple Valley Professional Firefighters will join us in delivering new books to the homeless children living in our communities. We are pleased that these children will be receiving their own new books to read and enjoy.
The book drive was a collective effort between the Assistance League ® volunteers and the entire high desert community, who generously donated books. An enormous thanks to the businesses that accepted collection boxes at their sites and to the many individuals who donated books.
Each year, this national program unites millions of volunteers across the nation with a common mission – to improve the lives of others. We understand how important it is for all children to have access to books. Our hope is that it will help promote a love of reading and discovering.
Assistance League® of Victor Valley is a non-profit organization whose volunteer members identify, develop, implement, and fund ongoing community-based philanthropic programs for specific needs of the Victor Valley.
