Operation School Bell provides new school uniforms to in-need Long Beach Unified School district students. Operation School Bell is the “safety net” that enables our schools to mandate uniforms. This program annually provides approximately 10,000 backpacks filled with new uniforms, undergarments and school supplies to Long Beach students.
The Orthodontic Program provides low-cost orthodontic treatment for children from families with limited financial resources. The Orthodontic Center’s administration, orthodontist, staff and Assistance League volunteers strive to provide comprehensive, quality orthodontic care in a personal and caring environment.
