Operation School Bell where ‘magic happens’
GARDEN CITY — After a year of modified operations due to the pandemic, Assistance League of Boise will again be providing new school clothes for 3,700 elementary students at 80 local schools through Operation School Bell.
Since 1990, Assistance League of Boise has worked closely with the school districts to provide brand new clothing to students with the greatest needs. Students are transported to Operation School Bell to “shop” and are outfitted from head to toe with the help of volunteers. Each year, volunteers work approximately 7,100 hours in preparation time ordering clothes, tagging, assembling kits, scheduling schools, communicating with schools and dressing students.
