Operation School Bell®

Operation School Bell is a nationwide philanthropic program of Assistance League. The purpose of this program is to provide school clothes to children in need. Sometimes these are school uniforms, and sometimes they are shorts, pants, short sleeve and long sleeve shirts. Also included is a coat, backpack, socks, shoes, underwear, toothpaste and a toothbrush.

What a joy to spend time with Stephanie Lopez, principal at Tom Landry Elementary and Pam Henderson, principal at Riverchase Elementary to be acknowledged at the Partner Appreciation breakfast with Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD.

Helping Hearts

Each week volunteer members bring donuts and serve coffee to the residents of River Oaks and CHRISTUS St. Joseph Village adult assisted living centers. Members visit with the residents and entertain them with crossword puzzles.

It is so rewarding for our members and the residents that we have continued meeting during the summer.
