The Assistance League of Las Vegas clothes over 8,000 poor local children a year through Operation School Bell, and it has many other wonderful efforts. As a member of the night-time portion of this group, we make and donate Memory Boxes to local hospitals for the families of premature infants and other babies who die in early infancy so that their family has a lovely gown for the burial, a pendent to bury with the infant and a memory book for the family. The group also has written sixteen bilingual Pocket Books which we donate by the tens of thousands to local public schools so that the kindergarten children own a book which they can read with their parents. We give the nurseries at the local public hospitals health kits for the new destitute mothers to take home so that they have a thermometer, baby blankets, and urgently needed necessities. We donate Shadow Buddies to the local Pediatric Oncologists so that children with newly diagnosed cancer can see what is happening to them, and then take the dolls with them for Show and Tell and to take to the hospital with them.
