Operation School Bell®

Students in need, K-12th grade, are brought to Assistance League to “shop” for brand new clothing. They all leave with a huge bag of new clothes, wide grins and a renewed sense of confidence.


The Bears Program distributes
our huggable Assistance League
Las Vegas teddy bears to 30 agencies.
These agencies deal with children in crisis.
