Operation School Bell ®
Thousands of children lack adequate clothing and shoes for school. Operation School Bell is the solution to this problem. Anaheim Assistance League members are proud to provide this service to the local community. Volunteers meet with each child, one on one, to help them select their clothes. Assistance League also has fundraisers so that every child can receive a pre-backed backpack with school supplies and hygiene products. This assistance allows the children to attend school with dignity and prevents them from being bullied or singled out for their inability to have the correct clothing and supplies. Operation School Bell has been the signature philanthropic program of Assistance League for decades and all total well over a million children have benefitted from chapters raising funds and providing new clothing; health and food assistance; and literacy, cultural and higher educational enrichment. Anaheim is proud to sponsor this signature program.
