Whereas, Assistance League provides over 3,000 local deserving students with new clothing for school each year under its Operation School Bell program; and
Whereas, being properly dressed for school enhances a student’s chance for success; and
Whereas, success in school is essential for our next generation of leaders and workers in our community, and
Whereas, Assistance Leagues Operation School Bell program is supported by an all-volunteer nonprofit organization that uses grants and thrift shop proceeds to spend approximately half a million dollars on this program.
NOW THEREFORE, I, Hillary L. Schieve, Mayor of the City of Reno, Nevada, do hereby declare

Assistance League Operation School Bell Day
In and for the City of Reno, I encourage all citizens to support efforts to make our students successful and support the Assistance League’s Operation School Bell program.
