I have been involved with one of thier programs Operation School Bell for 5 years. Last year we dressed 8,101 children with brand new clothing, shoes, health kits and school supplies. Our organization is 100% volunteer. I heard recently from a manager at Office Max (one of our community volunteers) that 97% of all funds raised go to the children that we service. There is no organization to my knowledge that has that trck record. we also have Assitance League Closet which 47 local schools have a budget and we buy items of clothing that they keep in a closet and clothe emergency cases. We have a reading program at a local school. Kids on the Block is a educational puppet program that adresses bully, hadicaps and etc. Layette Program that provides layettes to low-income expectant parents at the county hospital. Our bear program provides stuffed teddy bears to traumatized children These bears are given to police, firefighters and other groups that deal with these children. There are many other things that this group does as well and this group is awesome.
