Operation School Bell®

Operation School Bell is a nationwide philanthropic program of Assistance League which supports children in need.

Our chapter’s Operation School Bell program is targeted towards local, economically disadvantaged youth with the intent of supporting the following areas of need:  clothing, hunger, health, supplies and literacy.  This support can include school clothing sets for students as well as shoes, backpacks, jackets and personal hygiene items.

We also participate in community efforts to distribute food to students’ families and work with Coppell ISD officials to provide gift cards for essential items for students suffering with homelessness.  In addition, we conduct periodic book drives for distribution to various youth causes.

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.


Assistance League of Coppell is proud to offer $1,000 scholarships to three graduating seniors who have given of their time and talents to improve their community. The scholarship application is open to graduating seniors who attend Coppell ISD or who live in Coppell and attend school elsewhere.  Please click on the Scholarship tab at the top for complete details and to access the application.

Youth Today

The Youth Today umbrella encompasses programs aimed at teaching children how to make good choices by supporting and encouraging healthy lifestyles and good choices.  The programs under Youth Today are Drug Testing Kits, Fatal Vision Goggles and Journeys Mentoring.

Drug testing kits

Assistance League of Coppell provides drug testing kits and pamphlets free of charge to concerned parents in our community. Tests are designed to be used by parents at home. Discretion is always a priority. Learn more

Fatal Vision goggles

Fatal Vision goggles are specially designed and manufactured to simulate the visual impairment caused by alcohol or other drugs. The principle underlying the Fatal Vision Program is to demonstrate how quickly impairment can turn fun into devastating consequences. The school resource officer provides lined floor mats to walk on while wearing the glasses simulating the difficulties of walking a straight line, driving on a curved road and walking up steps.


Initiated in spring 2002, Journeys is a mentoring program for select elementary and middle school children within Coppell ISD. The counselors at each school identify students which they believe could benefit from our mentoring services, and with the parents’ permission, our volunteers meet with the students on a weekly basis. Our mentors help the students with their studies, help them make the right choices or are simply dependably there for the student in whatever way is needed.
