Bend – Operation School Bell® 

Through their Operation School Bell program, Assistance League of Bend is providing new clothing to 950 local students this winter. Like the fall clothing campaign, students shop for new school clothes at the Redmond and Bend Walmart stores on designated shopping days. Assistance League of Bend partners with the Family Access Network advocates at each school to identify children in need. These students are able to select new school clothes that fit and make them feel better about themselves using Assistance League of Bend “tickets to shop” valued at $100 for students in grades K-12 and $125 for students in grades 6-12. The local news station covered one of the shopping events. Click here to see Operation School Bell in action on KTVZ.
