I have been a member since 2003. I never knew the rewards involved with giving back until I joined. Wow there is no greater experience. We do Operation School Bell and the school bus arrives and children from first to six grades show up and these children come in and we try on brand new clothes and we supply them with 2 brand new outfits including underwear, socks and one new pair of sneakers. They get a healh kit, school supplies a book and lunch. When children are homeless we get their sizes and we make a package of all the things that I listed above and they are delivered to the school. We give memory boxes to parents who have lost their child at birth. We deliver books to the schools that are written in english and spanish so the children can take home a book. Our group are all volunteers and no one gets a salary except the janitor. We have a thrift shop and the funds we get go toward all programs. After one operation school bell one of the boys I clothe was on his way back from the bathroom said to me "Thanks for buying me these new clothes". You can't buy that feeling of making a child happy. I am so proud to be a member.
