Why Support Operation School Bellregtm-24_black.jpg

There are children in the Long Beach community whose families cannot afford to pay for school uniforms and children who miss class because they cannot dress appropriately.  For these children, Operation School Bell is the only community program providing the “safety-net” of new, free school uniforms.

Read the full corporate partnership prospectus.


School nurses, teachers and counselors identify the children most in need of assistance.  At an average cost of $60 per student, Assistance League of Long Beach provides elementary children with 2 complete uniforms (2 polo shirts and 2 pants or skorts), 3 pairs of socks and underwear, and a jacket.  Middle and high school students receive 3 uniform shirts and 2 pair of pants and a hooded sweatshirt.  In addition to uniforms, Assistance League of Long Beach provides school backpacks and supplies whenever possible and needed.
