I have been involved with Operation School Bell for many years as a school social worker in a few surrounding school districts in Platte and Clay County. Operation School Bell is amazing!!! The children love getting to go and try on new clothes with their personal volunteer...their eyes and smiles just light up when they come back with a bag of goodies!!! They always want to take everything out of the bag and show us all of the cool clothes they receive! It never fails that they want to wear the new clothes back to school, but we try to encourage them to save their new clothes for the next few days of school. When you see those kiddos walk down the halls of the school with their new clothes on...it is priceless!!! Their self-esteem is totally positive and they are proud to look like all the other kids with cool clothes! I get tears in my eyes every time I see one of them so happy and so proud to show me their new things! This is an amazing opportunity for our students and we are extremely grateful to be able to participate in this outstanding program!!! OSB rocks!!!
