What is the National Operation School Bell Award?

Operation School Bell®, the signature program of Assistance League, provides assistance to children in need.  Chapters determine the specific needs in their local communities, then develop, fund and implement the programs.

Assistance League is widely recognized for its efforts to provide new school clothing to children in need in communities across the country.  Last year alone more than 330,000 children benefited from this philanthropic endeavor.  Since 1958, more than 4.2 million children have been clothed by Assistance League chapters through their Operation School Bell programs.

Many organizations, foundations and individuals support Assistance League in this effort by providing significant financial, in-kind, and hands-on support. The direct, powerful and positive effect these contributions have on the Operation School Bell program is often recognized with the presentation of the National Operation School Bell Award.
