About this organization






To provide clothing to children, hygiene items to assault victims, stuffed animals to people in crisis situations, and we help others focus on families in need.


Operation School Bell is in its 50th year of service and provides free school clothing to the most economically-disadvantaged children attending all El Paso County public elementary schools. These are schoolchildren enrolled in first through fifth grade. The clothing provided is suitable for school and includes school uniforms if required. This past school year, 2874 children were served and the goal for the coming year is to serve at least 3000 children. Each child is provided with a pair of good quality shoes, 7 pairs of socks, 6 pairs of underwear, 3 pairs of pants, 3 T- or polo shirts, a pair of new shoes, and a hooded, zippered light jacket. If the school requires uniforms, the child is outfitted with the appropriate uniform in the school colors.
