Action!Week is a nationwide endeavor by our volunteer organization to help children succeed in school by providing literacy enrichment. The date for this special week was selected to honor the founder of Assistance League, Anne Banning, during her birthday week in late February.
Activities that Assistance League of Nashville has done include the following:
For 2019’s Action! Week, Assistance League ACTION! Week volunteers showed their support for learning at Crieve Hall Elementary and Paragon Mills Elementary by presenting each school library with a check for $750.00 to purchase new books for their school. Assistance League ladies dressed appropriately as “Cat in the Hat” and “Thing 1 and 2” honored the birthday of Dr. Seuss by reading to the children.
