Why Support Operation School Bell®

There are children in the Long Beach community whose families cannot afford school uniforms,  children who miss class because they cannot dress appropriately.  For these children, Operation School Bell is the only community program providing the “safety-net” of new, free school uniforms.

Read the full corporate partnership prospectus.


School nurses, teachers and counselors identify the children most in need of assistance.  At an average cost of $80 per student, Assistance League of Long Beach provides elementary school children with a backpack filled with, two complete uniforms (two polos and two bottoms), three pairs of socks and underwear, and a hoodie.  High school and middle school students receive three polos, two bottoms and a hoodie.  High school students also have the option to receive spirit wear.

In addition to uniforms, Assistance League of Long Beach provides school supplies and a new book whenever possible.
