Operation School Bell Program

Operation School Bell is a philanthropic program initiated in 2004. Assistance League Greeley raises money to fund two major projects run through this program. Operation School Bell provides uniforms for six elementary schools in District 6. They are given to the students at the start of each school year.
Our second project is to provide books to children visiting the Sunrise Family Dental Clinic on their initial visit to the clinic. The goal is to promote literacy in our children. During 2016-17 the clinic gave out 630 books.
The school uniform order for the 2017-18 school year consisted of 7,032 navy pants and 7,920 grey polo shirts for a total of $71,970. The schools receiving the uniforms included Maplewood, Martinez, Bella Romero (2 campuses), Centennial, and Madison Elementary.

Cheryl Stebleton, Assistance League Greeley Operation School Bell Chairman, delivers books to the Sunrise Dental Clinic. Accepting the books is Salina Tapia, Supervisor. The books are distributed to clinic clients to encourage reading and education.
