Assistance League® of Diablo Valley is a nonprofit, member volunteer organization dedicated to improving lives in our community through hands-on programs. R.E.A.D., one of its eight philanthropic programs whose letters stand for Read, Enrich, Achieve, and Discover, has provided member volunteers to instill the love of reading in elementary schoolchildren since 2003 and, in later years, has donated books to their respective classrooms and school libraries. All of the books donated in 2012-2013 boast a sticker that states, “I LOVE TO READ!”-- a statement that sometimes begins the monthly session.
The organization’s Grants Committee has appealed to corporations and businesses in the local community, requesting financial support for Assistance League of Diablo Valley’s philanthropic programs. Grants Committee Chair Susan Angle has recently been notified by Westamerica Bank Assistance Vice President/Financial Sales Officer Theresa Fortier that the bank has awarded $1000 to R.E.A.D. Formed in 1972, Westamerica is known as a regional community bank that enjoys a reputation of strength and stability. How fortunate for the R.E.A.D. recipients, our community’s greatest asset.
