Operation School Bell®, the signature program of Assistance League Montgomery County, has completed its spring high school dressing events having served approximately 900 deserving students. Annually, Assistance League provides new school clothing for over 4000 students across all grade levels.
For the volunteer members who help at a shopping event, the greatest reward has been the smiles and appreciation on the faces of both the children and the parents.
Aside from dressing students, Operation School Bell supports literacy in our community by annually donating books to non-Title 1 schools in addition to participating in a Dr. Seuss reading program and a Reading Buddies program.
We are happy to report in total through all dressing events held in the current school year, as well as our literacy and voucher programs, we have served over 7700 students. This would not have been possible without the dedication and service of our members. Thank you!
