Meeting the basic needs of children in low-income schools we serve

Celebrating 20 Years

2024 marks our 20th Anniversary and we’re celebrating all year long! As part of this celebration we’ll feature a different monthly wish list.  During February, our featured wish list includes a large selection of books for children, both fact and fiction. As Garrison Keillor said, “A book is a gift you can open again and again.” So head over to, pick a couple great books, and remember to select Assistance League of Northern Virginia as the shipping address to ensure prompt delivery so we can bring endless joy to children in need of a great story!


We’re only able to do what we do because of the generous support of our community. If you’d like to help us make an impact, donate today!

Ignite the Imagination with Great Book!

Continuing our 20-year anniversary celebration, we’re helping children discover new worlds and learn more about this one by providing a selection of engaging titles spanning fact and fiction including many popular books that our community members have likely read to their own children and grandchildren. As Garrison Keillor said, “A book is a gift you can open again and again,” so help us provide this wonderful experience to the next generations today! Please remember to select Assistance League of Northern Virginia as the shipping address to ensure items are delivered to us so we can get them into the hands of those knowledge-thirsty children!
