Operation School Bell® Chalks Up Impressive Stats
Operation School Bell had another successful year in 2016-2017! Volunteers brought smiles and a sense of pride to nearly 3,500 St. Louis area students at 29 schools who received crisp new uniforms during our 57 dressing days. Each student was carefully fitted by an Assistance League® volunteer and was given two pairs of navy blue pants, two short-sleeve and one long-sleeve blue shirt, one fleece jacket, socks, underwear, a toothbrush, toothpaste and a book of their choice. As in past years, children waiting their turn for the dressing rooms enjoyed a variety of arts and crafts, wrote cheerful messages to hospital patients and were treated to a delightful magic show by one of our talented members.
