Philanthropic Programs

Operation School Bell®

Elementary students, grades K – 5, are invited to visit a retail store who has partnered with Assistance League.   With the help of their “personal shopper” the students may select new clothing, including socks and underwear.  They also receive a shoe voucher, a jacket, a personal care kit, school supplies and at least one new book.  Their smiles as they leave are as big as the bags they are carrying!
