Together We Can Do More
Can you imagine 120 chapters with 26,000 members, each gearing up to do a one time a year project together. Well, that is exactly what is going to take place. The project is ACTION Week!
This project coincides with the birthday of our founder Anne Banning, February 24th. During the week of her birthday, chapters nationwide will have a special celebration for the children we serve. Activities may include collecting books and delivering them to participating agencies, a reading by a children’s book author, or chapters may go to their local library and read. There is also a chapter which will introduce the arts to children through painting and working with their hands doing crafts. The choices are inspiring. And the sky’s the limit.
In the past, this project has collected so many thousands of books for children who have never had a book of their own. An idle mind is such a waste and reading opens many doors for them. You are never bored in life when you have a book to read.
So, during the week of February 24th, search your community for an Assistance League and go and see all the wonderful work they do, and also how they are celebrating this yearly project.
Happy 2020. Check out the Assistance League. Walk in and see what they do and find out how you can help with their work. You may decide to be a volunteer yourself, donate goods to the many chapters who have thrift shops or to be an ambassador for this wonderful organization.
