Operation School Bell® is the signature philanthropic program of Assistance League. This program purchases school-mandated uniforms for children whose parents welcome the relief of not having to decide whether to buy their children school uniforms or to pay some of their bills. Members order, unload, unpack, sort, label, package, and distribute the new school uniforms to these children in low socio-economic public schools that require a uniform, as well as, to homeless children. Each child receives two pairs of pants, two shirts and two pairs of socks. We deliver thousands of items of clothing to schools in three San Jose school districts for distribution to students by school personnel. In recent years there has been enough funding to also purchase other clothing including sweatshirts for students and shoes for the homeless children. Click here to learn about the history of OSB.
