Serving All Five Santa Clarita Valley School Districts

Operation School Bell

Operation School Bell, Assistance League of Santa Clarita’s signature program, supports student success in school by providing students in need with clothing, shoes, eye exams and glasses, supplies, food, and literacy support.

 

Over 35,000 students have received clothing and shoes for a cumulative value of over $3,200,000 since 1991. In addition, since 2014, icareforkids has provided over 700 students with eye exams and glasses valued at over $82,000.

Clothes

Assistance League of Santa Clarita believes that children perform better in school when they have a positive self-image. New school clothing and shoes are provided to students in need from transitional kindergarten through 12th grade who have been referred to us by schools in the Santa Clarita Valley.

Eligible children are invited to shop with their parents for school clothing and shoes at a local department store, where our volunteers provide help and guidance.

Health

icare for kids serves students from elementary, middle and high schools in the Santa Clarita Valley. The program provides free eye exams and glasses to students in need who are referred to us by their schools.

This service provides students with the priceless gift of clear vision as they strive to succeed in school.

Supplies

Hygiene kits with basic grooming and health products and backpacks with school supplies are provided to community outreach centers at local schools.

Food

Food items, collected by Assisteens® Auxiliary and Assistance League chapter members, have benefited students and families at College of the Canyons and the Santa Clarita Food Pantry.

Literacy

Literacy support for students in Santa Clarita Valley schools will be provided in the future through reading with students in classrooms, as well as with books for students and classroom libraries.
