Operation School Bell is Assistance League’s signature program. The goal is to help children thrive and succeed in school by providing new school clothing. Multiple events held during the year are targeted towards deserving children who might not otherwise have the opportunity to obtain new school clothing:
- Operation School Bell Clothing Children – Camp Pendleton: Children of enlisted military personnel are invited to select clothing and school supplies at an event held in collaboration with seven Southern California Assistance League Chapters. We are proud to have participated in this program for sixteen consecutive years.
- Operation School Bell Clothing Children – Target: Elementary and Middle School children are selected by their schools to attend a shopping event at held at Target in Encinitas. Our volunteers assist the children and their parents in choosing clothing based on an allocated dollar amount.
- Operation School Bell – Marshalls: A generous grant from the City of Solana Beach has allowed us to provide new clothing and shoes for local Pre-School children.
