Operation School Bell®

Weekend Food for Kids

In Northern Virginia, one in six children are at risk for hunger.  To help with this need, the Weekend Food for Kids program provides nonperishable food over the weekend to children who receive free or reduced price meals during the school year.

Operation School Bell®

New Clothing for Kids

Studies show that having the proper clothing promotes educational success through better self-esteem and school attendance.  We provide clothing, shoes, personal grooming products, and haircuts to children from families in need in our community.

Reading Express/Literacy

Certain first graders identified as at-risk students for falling behind in school participate in our Reading Express program.  Members tutor these children thus helping enhance their language skills and reading comprehension.  We also provide new books to classrooms and children as part of a school summer reading program.

Operation Hugs

Hugs Pillow Program

We reach out to help comfort children undergoing medical procedures at a community clinic that serves low-income families by providing heart-shaped pillows.  These pillows are filled with kid-friendly items.
