Nonprofit participated in national ‘Make a Difference Day’ with book drive….

To celebrate the largest national day of community service, October 22, volunteers from Assistance League of Victor Valley collected new (and gently used) children’s books for grades K-8. The recipient schools and outreach organizations were invited to attend a celebration at the Assistance League office, where they were served refreshments, socialized with each other, and were each given over 150 books for their school libraries and outreach programs.

The Assistance League of Victor Valley is located on Highway 18 in Apple Valley, but true to its name, services the entire Victor Valley with a host of far-reaching philanthropic programs. Their primary programs are focused on helping children in need. The all-volunteer members staff its main revenue source, the Assistance League Thrift Shop.

Every year, Make a Difference Day unites millions of volunteers across the nation with a common mission – to improve the lives of others. In 2015, Assistance League volunteers across the Nation collected more than 82,000 books!
