Assistance League® of Omaha Sponsors Operation School Bell

Each year, Assistance League® ( of Omaha sponsors Operation School Bell, in which over 4,000 children are given the opportunity to shop for new clothes. Operation School Bell will be held October 9-21 in partnership with JCPenney’s Westroads store (800 N 98th St.) where the event takes place.

Children will be given vouchers for the amount of money they are allowed depending on their age. These children are recommended for this program by their school counselors or nurses. This involves 202 schools in the Greater Omaha area, both private and public. This meets only 10% of the need in Omaha.

Assistance League of Omaha is a volunteer non-profit organization that supports seven Philanthropic Programs that help the Omaha community. Resource development includes the Christmas Caravan and the Assistance League Thrift Shop at 36th and Leavenworth St., along with grants and donations.
