Operation School Bell Target Dressing
It was a great evening! Assistance League of East members held their first Target dressing for the 2017-18 school year. Approximately 90 children from East Valley elementary schools came out to shop for new clothing. So many smiles and thank yous. The kids had a great time choosing their own clothing, with the assistance of their parents and our members. As the children check out, they are provided with a hygiene kit containing shampoo, comb, brush, tooth brush and deodorant. One of the boys exclaimed - WOW, my own deodorant! A girl checking the kit closely said - I can really use this! - referring to the shampoo. The children and parents were so appreciative. Many hugs and tears. We have several more dressings scheduled through February 2018. On behalf of the children, we give thanks to this year's early donors: Cox Charities, Tempe Sports Authority, and Tempe Diablos.
