Operation School Bell®

Elementary and middle school students in need 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.

Seniors R&R

One Tuesday of each month, Assistance League of Norman members play bingo and provide a social time for clients of Full Circle Life Enrichment Center. Full Circle is a non-profit organization that provides daily adult respite care. Chapter members provide bingo prizes and refreshments for the Full Circle clients.

Assault Survival Kits®

Through this program Assistance League of Norman provides the Norman Rape Crisis Center with kits containing a new sweat suit, flip-flops, and grooming supplies to be given to survivors of rape and other violent assault.

The Women’s Resource Center operates the Norman Rape Crisis Center.  The center provides an environment where an assault victim can be examined by a forensic nurse and interviewed by police in a private and comfortable environment.

Community Outreach

Community Outreach allows a flexible, quick response strategy by which Assistance League of Norman can respond to specific community needs that do not fit within currently existing programs and that can be addressed on a one-time-only or short-term basis.

Assistance League of Norman was one of the first on the scene after the May 20, 2013 tornado bringing supplies, food, and water to those affected by the storms in Moore.

Operation School Bell®Teen Retail

High school students in need shop for clothes at Kohl’s, a local retail store.

Bears for Children

Since 1988 Assistance League of Norman members have provided cuddly bears to children in the community who are in the midst of a crisis or facing a traumatic event.  Bears are distributed to children through local agencies such as the Norman Police Department, Food and Shelter for Friends, and Norman Regional Hospital.

Care Kits

Grooming kits are provided to women and their children residing in the Norman Women’s Shelter operated by the Norman Women’s Resource Center. The shelter provides a safe home for women and children who have left an abusive spouse or partner. When the family leaves the shelter to begin a new life, Assistance League of Norman provides up to $100 in groceries and cleaning supplies for the family.

May Fair Arts Festival/5K

May Fair Arts Festival now in its 44th year is a program of Assistance League of Norman and is our gift to the community. Assistance League is a non‐profit organization serving the Norman community by giving time and financial support to a variety of philanthropic programs to support our community. During 2014 chapter members provided more than 13,000 hours of volunteer service.

These are but a few of the small miracles we
help make happen throughout any given year.
