Assistance League of Tucson
April 23, 2011
I have volunteered with Assistance League for eight years, spending most of my hours in Operation School Bell. Operation School Bell is one of the Assistance League's National Programs that dresses underpriviledged children for back to school. At our local Chapter here in Tucson, we try very hard to offer our School Bell children a positive, caring and rewarding experience by giving them new clothing, school supplies and age appropriate books. Many of these children are receiving new clothing for the first time. For a volunteer, the experience is wonderfully fulfilling and heart-breaking at the same time. For the children, it can be a single positive experience that might help them face the daily hardships and difficult challenges they experievce daily in their young lives.
