Assistance League® of Omaha’s Operation School Bell® Provides Clothes for Local Children in Need
Operation School Bell (OSB), sponsored by Assistance League of Omaha (www.alomaha.org), will be held at JCPenney Store/Westroads Shopping Center from October 4th through 16th this year.
Operation School Bell is the major philanthropic program of Assistance League of Omaha’s community service programs, providing new clothing for children in Omaha and the metro area. Last year approximately 3,500 children in need shopped for new school clothes, shoes, and coats at Westroads thanks to the proceeds of fundraisers such as Christmas Caravan Tour of Homes, donations, and grants.
Assistance League of Omaha is an all-volunteer community service organization. Approximately 75% of its 350+ members will be working a total of 16 shifts throughout the 12 days serving children from kindergarten through 8th grade. There will be more than 10 school districts with 198 schools served by referrals from each school based on the poverty rate of the school and its population. Over 4000 children are being scheduled for this year. This will bring the total number of children served to over 60,000 since OSB began is 1976!
