These young kindergarten through 12th grade students are still growing. The clothes and shoes they wore last year, or even last month, most likely won’t fit anymore. Everyone knows what it is like to wear something that doesn’t fit comfortably. It’s hard to concentrate when your pants are creeping up your leg or your shoes are pinching your toes.
This is why Assistance League of Bellingham is doing their best to keep their Operation School Bell® (OSB) program up and running. The main source of income for the new clothing comes from Assistance League’s Thrift & Gift Shop on Meridian Street, in Bellingham. Unfortunately, as with many stores, they had to temporarily close due to COVID. This has made a huge difference in the number of students they will be able to help this October and November.
