Operation School Supplies

Preparing Students for Success

Sample of items provided through Operation School Supplies

Remember going back to school in the fall with a brand new box of crayons and pencils?  Since 1996, Assistance League of Boise members provide brand new school supplies to ensure all students are ready for school. Our volunteers purchase, assemble and distribute items requested by participating Ada County schools in May in preparation for the start of the following school year.

Please contact the counselor of the school your student attends and they can determine your eligibility for the program.

Thousand Dollars Spent

Making A Difference

Serving Children In Need Throughout Ada County Public Schools Since 1996

Operation School Supplies is a very large program requiring a large budget and approximately two weeks in May 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.

“We are so thankful for the Assistance League of Boise. As students come back to school, they are instrumental in helping families that need a little extra help get connected to the school supplies. In addition, they make this resource available at the students’ schools through coordinated efforts. We know this takes a lot of time and effort on their end and we appreciate it!”

— Sara, Boise School District Community Schools
