Operation School Bell® + Beyond the Bell

Operation School Bell® and Beyond the Bell® provide new clothing, personal care items and literary material to area school children in need.

Helping Students in the Classroom

Clean, new well-fitting school clothing helps create positive outcomes for students and their learning. Items are distributed in multiple ways.

  • Assistance League volunteers fit students from 30 schools throughout the region at our Headquarters. 
  • Each student receives 2 pairs of pants, 2 short-sleeve and 1 long-sleeve shirt, 1 fleece jacket, 6 pair of socks, 6 pair of underwear, a toothbrush, toothpaste, a hat and gloves, a belt and a new book.
  • Assistance League “closets” in Saint Louis Public schools are stocked with new school uniforms, jackets, coats, underwear, socks, hats, gloves and toiletry items to meet students’ ongoing needs.
  • Local social service agencies are also served.

Schools interested in participating may submit an application form.
