OPERATION SCHOOL BELL®

Building Confidence

We provide new school clothes to kids in need

Operation School Bell provides far more than just a new wardrobe. It allows school children to fit in better with their peers and empowers them to reach their potential.

Kids are given the confidence they need to succeed

For some children, this will be the first time they have had a new pair of shoes, socks, underwear, or a toothbrush of their very own.  Now, they truly feel like they fit in with the other kids.

Boost to self-esteem

New clothing has the potential to boost self-esteem, encourage school attendance, and improve academic performance.
