"Assistance League's, Operation School Bell program, is such a
wonderful resource for our students and their families to help them
with basic needs such as clothing.
Through the generosity of Assistance League, many of our students have been helped in the past.
The students and their families are so happy and grateful to receive new clothes.
Seeing them wear their new outfits to school, I can tell that they
feel good about themselves and have better self- esteem."
Lisa Garnett, School Counselor

From another school counselor, Lori Hetrick,
(after Assistance League of Hawaii provided new clothing for her students.)
“When children don’t have to worry about the clothes they are wearing, or what their peers are thinking about them, they can focus on the main reason why they are in school.
These students have beautiful hearts and they have a desire to do well.
You have truly blessed them all with this fantastic opportunity. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart!”
Lori Hetrick, School Councelor
From A Mother:
Dear Assistance League,
I want to thank you for donating the clothing items.
My son is happy and proud to go to school.
Most of the time, he didn’t want to go due to everyone else having new
clothes and we can’t afford new clothes after buying school supplies
for 3 children.
So I want to say “Mahalo” a big thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Signed by the Mom and the kids.
