Clothing Children in Need (K-5) In Three Mobile County Public Schools
 Craighead, Fonde and Maryvale Elementary Schools

In 2017-2018, Operation School Bell clothed 575 students

Children who go to school without adequate clothing often suffer low self-esteem. Students in three elementary schools are identified by Mobile County public school counselors and given needed uniform items through Operation School Bell supplied by Assistance League of Mobile volunteers.

Each Child May Receive:

  • one pair of uniform pants
  • a belt
  • one shirt
  • one pair of underwear
  • one pair of socks

Readers Are Leaders supports literacy by reading to classrooms at partner schools and giving each child in all three schools a summer reading book to take home.

The principal at each school welcomes Assistance League members as they make deliveries of uniforms and other needed clothing items for students in need.

Children love to get their summer reading books. Assistance League of Mobile encourages the love of reading and notes that Readers Are Leaders.

Members wear their blue aprons when they label the books that are donated to our partners schools.
