Operation School Supplies
Operation School Supplies (OSS) is a philanthropic project of Assistance League of Boise (ALB). OSS has been providing school supplies to the children of Ada County since 1996. This year we are able to provide 87 elementary, middle, junior high, and charter schools with approximately $61,000 worth of school supplies. The 7,435 students selected by school counselors or teachers will receive supplies which include crayons, erasures, pencils, pens, glue sticks, rulers, notebook paper, spiral notebooks, paints, felt markers, and colored pencils.
ALB is a member of the National Assistance League and we are an all-volunteer, non-profit organization that puts caring and commitment into action through philanthropic projects in Ada County. Other ALB programs include: Operation School Bell, History in the Brown House, Cinderella's Closet, Project Hearing, and Baby Bundles.
Funds for our programs come from community donations, private contributions, grants, and the operation of the ALB Thrift Shop at 5825 Glenwood Avenue. The public is invited to visit our Thrift Shop, and to support our programs by donating good quality used clothing and small household items.
