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. In recent years there has been enough funding to also purchase shoes for the homeless children.
Due to the pandemic, this year we are not going into the schools to measure students. We will deliver uniforms to 29 schools for distribution to students by school personnel.
