What We Do

 

Operation School Bell works with 130 high poverty K-8th grade schools in the Greater Phoenix Area to provide brand new clothing, shoes and other essentials to children in need. Partner schools are visited by our 40ft mobile dressing centers, known as the Delivering Dreams buses throughout the school year.  The buses are retrofitted to include shelves filled with clothing, a waiting area, shoe fitting station and dressing rooms.  Eligible students are signed up for the program by school personnel and they are served during the school day on the schools’ scheduled date.  Students are fitted for appropriate sizes are able to try items on before making their final selections. 

 

Partner School Districts

Each student served receives an entire wardrobe valued at approximately $200-$250. The program offers uniform clothing as well as casual clothing to meet the dress code requirement for each school. 
The wardrobe package includes:

  • two bottoms (choice of pants, shorts, or skort)
  • three shirts
  • one sweatshirt
  • one pair of shoes
  • seven pair of socks
  • seven underwear
  • a health kit filled with hygiene items
  • a brand new book

Thank you to our Grantors
