Operation School Bell®

Clothing the Children

Elementary students in need, TK- 5th grade, shop with members at our local Kohl’s store for brand new clothing and shoes.  They all leave with a huge bag of new school clothes, wide grins and a renewed sense of confidence.


Birthday Bags

We provide gifts and party supplies for Tri-Valley Haven children to celebrate their special day while they are residents of the shelter. With a “Party in a Bag,” we put a smile on the birthday child’s face.

Books of My Own

We partner with Tri-Valley classroom teachers and we purchase a book title to be studied in class. Afterwards, the book is given to each child to keep, becoming a “book of my own.”

Foster Kids

We provide books and educational activities for local foster children. We also provide essential filled backpacks to graduating high school seniors.

Book Buddies

Our members partner with the local Senior Center and are paired up with second graders at a local elementary school to increase the students’ reading skills. Our members and local seniors have enjoyed being part of the reading activities.


Food for Families

We partner with the Tri-Valley Haven Food Pantry in Livermore to shop and provide nutritious groceries to over 4,000 residents each month.

Screening Eyes Early

We provide vision screening in several of our local preschools for 4 and 5 year olds. Our purpose is to detect amblyopia early which can then be treated by their doctor. This disorder decreases vision in an eye that otherwise typically appears normal.



To help the next generation continue their higher education, we award three scholarships totaling $7,500.  Two scholarships are awarded to high school seniors heading to a four year college/university or an accredited community college or a certified technical/trade  school to help pay for tuition, books and supplies. The third scholarship will be awarded to a Las Positas College graduate entering a four-year college or university.
