Operation School Bell
, the landmark philanthropy of Assistance League and Assistance League of Bend has, for almost 18 years, been providing school clothing for vulnerable children in Deschutes County. Referred by the Family Access Network operating within Deschutes County schools, students in grades K-12, with guidance from Assistance League members, are provided the opportunity to shop with a parent at a local retailer for their specific school needs.

These vulnerable school children receive new clothes through grants and donations from the supportive and generous people in our community, our partnership with a local retailer, and our dedicated all-volunteer membership working our multiple fundraisers. Thanks to all these contributors and participants, during the last school year Assistance League was able to provide warm jackets, boots, shoes and other essentials to over 2,000 school children within our community. This brings us to a total of 16,000 children since 1993.

It is through the smiles, the gratitude and the excitement seen in the families we serve during this shopping experience that we hope to achieve our goal of sending the children in our community to school with the confidence and self esteem they need to be successful!
