Ada County’s Largest Supplier of School Supplies

No child should go to school without the necessary school supplies!

Remember going back to school in the fall with a brand new box of crayons and pencils?  Assistance League of Boise members make sure students in need have all the same supplies as their classmates.

OSS SuppliesAda County Public Schools fill out special requests for school supplies each spring.  Our volunteers then purchase, assemble and distribute the requested items to each participating school in August prior to the beginning of the school year.  The supplies are then distributed to students in need throughout the school year by their teachers and counselors.

This is a very large program requiring a large budget and approximately two weeks in August for volunteers to sort and package each school’s requested list of supplies, and support pickup of the many boxes from schools throughout Ada County.

Please contact the counselor of the school your student will be attending and they will be able to assist with supply needs.
