Operation School Bell


Operation School Bell, our major philanthropic program, provides children in need with new school clothing to enhance their self-esteem and encourage regular school attendance.  School personnel from El Paso County public schools refer children, K-12, to this program. Partnering with a local retail facility, Assistance League of Colorado Springs provides students the opportunity to shop for school appropriate clothing within a specific budget as they and their parents see the need. Pikes Peak Auxiliary of Assistance League of Colorado Springs provides hygiene kits to each Operation School Bell recipient.  During the past 40 years, approximately 69,900 children have been clothed at a cost of over $3,292,000. In 2014, 2,800 students were served..
