We provide new clothing and literacy supplies to children in need in four Clark County School Districts – Vancouver, Evergreen, Washougal and Woodland. Assistance League of Southwest Washington members serve as liaisons with the schools, working with staff to identify needs, purchasing the garments and supplies, delivering them as requested.
Assistance League of Southwest Washington’s Operation School Bell® has distributed over 6000 NEW clothing and personal hygiene items, along with various school supplies to students in 20 schools in our area!
“Thank you! I usually feel so outdated with the other kids, but now I can fit in.”
“A few weeks ago a student came to school wearing a pair of slippers. I asked him where his shoes were and he said he didn’t have any. I was able to give him a new pair of shoes and socks and told him he could keep them. His face lit up with the biggest smile…He was so excited he danced down the hall. I love giving kids a new pair of shoes they always have a little extra bounce in their step. Thank you so much for all your hard work and dedication in making this program a success.”
