Empowering children to succeed

Operation School Bell® is Assistance League’s signature program. The goal is to help children succeed in school by providing new school clothing; tutoring assistance and books to advance their reading skills.

In 2016, Operation School Bell clothed over 400 students

Children who go to school without adequate clothing often suffer low self-esteem. Students (K-5th grade) are identified by Livermore, Pleasanton and Dublin public school teachers and counselors. The children are invited to come to Kohl’s at a designated time to shop with a volunteer.  They are outfitted from head to toe with the assistance of one of our caring member volunteers.

 

The children all leave with a huge bag of new clothes, wide grins and a renewed sense of confidence.

Each Child Receives:

While at Kohl’s, each student receives:

  • Pants
  • Tops
  • A warm jacket
  • And any other clothing items
  • Payless gift card to purchase a pair of shoes and socks
  • A reading book from Books of My Own program

Books of My Own

Take-home reading books are purchased for children at various schools in the Tri-Valley area. We partner with the classroom teacher to choose a book title to be studied in class. Then our members purchase a copy of the book for each student in the class. The book is given to each child to keep, becoming a “book of my own.”
