Dressing Children in Need
In 2016-2017, Operation School Bell dressed almost 1,500 students!!
Children who go to school without adequate clothing often suffer low self-esteem. Students are identified by North Orange County public school personnel. Many schools send the children on a school bus.
Elementary Students “go shopping” for brand NEW clothing in our attractive facilities and are outfitted from head to toe with the assistance of one of our caring member volunteers.
During the 2016-17 school year, we were able to expand our program to junior high children and 4 new schools. For the 2016-2017 school year, we clothed almost 1,500 students. We added additional Target Shopping days for non-uniform schools and junior high schools. We also added two Saturdays to our schedule for the convenience of our families.
Each Child Receives:
- two pairs of jeans, leggings or uniform pants
- a winter jacket or heavy sweater
- two tee shirts or uniform shirts
- six pairs of underwear
- six pairs of socks
- crop tops for older elementary school girls
- a shoe card for a new pair of shoes – to be redeemed at a local store
- two books of their choice
- a backpack
During the 2015-2016 school year, almost 1,200 elementary school students visited Operation School Bell. The children all left with a huge backpack of new clothes, wide grins and a renewed sense of confidence.
Here are a few thank you notes from children …
Our Members Love to Volunteer for Operation School Bell!
They love to help the children “shop”, but also purchase the clothing,track inventory, and restock the shelves for the children!
