Empowering children to succeed

Operation School Bell® is Assistance League’s signature program. The goal is to help children succeed in school by providing new school clothing; tutoring assistance and books to advance their reading skills.

One of our Operation School Bell programs is Books of My Own.

Books of My Own

Take-home reading books are purchased for children at various schools in the Tri-Valley area. We partner with the classroom teacher to choose a book title to be studied in class. Then our members purchase a copy of the book for each student in the class. The book is given to each child to keep, becoming a “book of my own.”

Dear Assistance League,

Thank you for giving us the books, Sideways Stories. I am enjoying it because it is very funny and silly. I love when one kid made a teacher turn into an apple and an adult ate the apple, but she didn’t know the evil teacher was the apple. Thank you so much for the books!
