Boise – ACTION! Week

Assistance League of Boise distributes books to Ada County elementary schools.


Assistance League of Boise has once again found a way to support our community by placing books in the hands of children. Assistance League chapters all over the country participate in what is deemed ACTION! Week.


Working closely with the Boise School districts, the Assistance League of Boise was able to identify a unique solution for the literacy needs of elementary school students in the Treasure Valley. ALB purchased and distributed 78 sets of decodable books called “The Frog Series.” Decodable books encourage children to sound out words using a learned decoding strategy rather than guessing from pictures.


Funding for ACTION! Week is generated from community donations, private contributions, grants and proceeds from the sales at ALB’s thrift shop in Garden City.
