Assistance League® of Phoenix Needs Used and New Books for K-8 Children 

Assistance League® of Phoenix has been serving the Phoenix area for more than 55 years.  They partner with more than 90 Title I schools throughout the year, bringing their Operation School Bell program to over 8,500 students each year both through the Delivering Dreams buses and satellite dressing center located in Sunnyslope.  Many of these low income schools are in need of books for children K-8 while schools are out of session during to coronavirus.  Assistance League of Phoenix has been filling the void by donating books they typically hand out during Operation School Bell.  

“While our buses and dressing center are temporarily closed, we are trying to help provide reading for low income students who don’t have access to books,” said Aimee Runyon, CEO of Assistance League® of Phoenix.  “We want to keep the children busy and their minds working while they are out of school.  All of the students we serve come from Title I schools and likely don’t have many resources at home and with libraries closed it’s difficult for them to get access to books.” 

The community can help by dropping off gently used/new books at our offices in Sunnyslope or purchase new books online and shipping to our offices at Assistance League of Phoenix, 9224 N. 5th Street, Phoenix, AZ 85020.  Our office hours are 8-4 Monday-Friday.  Please contact the office at 602-944-7636 to make arrangements for drop off.  Arrangements will be made to avoid direct contact with our staff.
