Reviews for Assistance League Of Norman, Inc.
After teaching in Norman, OK, and seeing the impact that Operation School Bell had on many of my students, I now get to volunteer in the store. It is AMAZING...a true operation of many volunteers running the group as well, or better, than any for profit business. The smiles that we see on children make every minute worth it! I love volunteering for a group that truly makes a difference for our kids and our community.
