Assistance League of Bend’s Operation School Bell is a source of hope for the one in five local children living in poverty. Through Operation School Bell, Assistance League of Bend has proudly been providing back-to-school clothing to low-income children since 1991. With the rise in hospitalizations due to the COVID-19 Delta variant, we made the decision to cancel our recent fundraising events. Now, we need your help to supply more than 2,400 children in Deschutes County with clothing.
Please consider making a financial contribution to provide a local child with new clothing. Your tax-deductible donation will elevate a child’s self esteem, help them feel more accepted by their peers, and empower them to learn.
