Fall Shopping Event

  • Each Fall, Operation School Bell®provides clothing vouchers to children in the Elementary and Middle School of the 4J and Bethel School Districts.
  • The voucher program allows for families to shop at their own convenience and privacy at two Fred Meyer stores.
  • The children are identified by their school counselors or nurses as being in financial need and their names are forwarded to Operation School Bell® .
  • If you, or someone you know needs help in purchasing school clothes, please contact your child’s school counselor for further information.
