Operation School Bell

Operation School Bell, a philanthropic program of Assistance League of Downey, has opened for the school year. Children in need, referred by Downey elementary schools, are given a new jacket, three shirts, two pairs of pants, underwear, socks, shoes, a backpack and a hygiene kit collectively worth about $85. Pictured above showing a typical outfit are (left to right) chairmen Marge Lewis, Janice Allen and Ann-Marie Sannebeck. Funds for Operation School Bell come from the Second Tyme Around thrift store on Downey Avenue and other fundraising events. For information on how to help, call (562) 869-0232. ********** Published: October 16, 2009 - Volume 8 - Issue 26
