Our newest philanthropy, RED or Read Every Day, is now under the umbrella of Operation School Bell. This project was formerly known as “Make a Difference Day.”
Our goal is to continue to collect books to give to new K-6 teachers throughout Benton County for their classroom libraries. These books will offer an opportunity for children who have finished their assignments to pick up a good book and enjoy some silent reading.
Thanks to the generosity of our membership as well as a large donation from Grass Roots bookstore of Corvallis, we were able to deliver about 1300 new and gently used books to 39 delighted new teachers last fall.
Since collections are ongoing for 2017, we would welcome your donation of new or gently used children’s books. Please contact Assistance League of Corvallis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
