Operation School Bell gives children the unique joy of many firsts: the first time they’ve ever received new clothes; the first time they’ve worn a pair of shoes that fit properly; the first time they’ve ever owned new underwear or their own grooming supplies. Operation School Bell gives 11,000 books, 5,500 pairs of shoes/backpacks and 227,000 articles of clothing to more than 5,500 Los Angeles Unified School District students from impoverished circumstances.

August has partnered with Operation School Bell to provide a backpack for every bag we sell. Join us in the effort to combat homelessness, poverty, illiteracy, drug abuse and crime for the children of Los Angeles.
