Featured event

Contribute to local literacy

Action Week is an annual marketing initiative designed to promote Assistance League of Georgetown’s all-volunteer organization by showing the many ways the group helps children.

This year, in light of COVID-19 constraints, the campaign is going virtual through a virtual book drive. Instead of a physical book drop, this year the team is reaching out to solicit direct monetary donations. All funds collected in February will be distributed to three local schools in Jarrell and Florence. All funds will be used to purchase age-appropriate books to expand the schools’ libraries and reading programs. Donations can also be made by mail or at the Thrift Shop at 900 N. Austin Ave., Ste. 115, Georgetown, open Thursdays-Saturdays from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. www.assistanceleague.org/georgetown-area
