Westamerica Bank Awards Grant to Foster Literacy

Assistance League will provide pleasure reading books to 2nd grade students in all 40 of our Operation School Bell schools. Many children in these Title-1 schools have never owned their own book. As they come to the schools to pick up meals and class assignments, they will be given books provided by our chapter. Westamerica Bank has generously assisted us with this program. President Mary McPherson accepts the check from Debbie Friesen, Westamerica Bank AVP, Community Relations Director.
