Operation School Bell

The Operation School Bell® philanthropy program is Assistance League’s signature program.  Individual chapters research specific needs in their local communities; then develop, fund and implement programs that support children in need. Since 1980, Assistance League of Capistrano Valley’s Operation School Bell® program has provided over 41,513 in need students with new school clothing.

The Assistance League of Capistrano Valley’s OSB program helps children succeed in school by providing new back to school clothes. We work with liaisons at 24 middle schools in the Capistrano Valley Unified School District to identify families in need.  Members participate in the Operation School Bell events by volunteering at a local retail store where children and their parents shop for back to school clothes.
