Dressing Children in Need
Throughout North Orange County Public Schools

In 2019-2020, Operation School Bell dressed over 1,583 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.  In 2020 our Operation School Bell program has been expanded to include  clothing, books, food, health items and school supplies.

During the 2019-2020 school year, we served 1,583 school students at 43 schools for a cost of $150566.  The children all left with a huge backpack or bag of new clothes, wide grins and a renewed sense of confidence.

Students from uniform schools “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.  Non-uniform schools from elementary to high school go shopping at Target.

During the 2016-17 school year, we were able to expand our program to  junior high children and 4 new schools. Each year we continue to add new schools and additional Target Shopping days for non-uniform schools.  In 2017-2018 we held 7 Target shopping events for 845 children.  In 2019-2020 this program was extended to high school students.

For the current school year we are addressing the need for school supplies as requested by the schools we serve.
