Assistance League helps Solana Beach Head Start buy new school clothes
Assistance League of Rancho San Dieguito (ALRSD) recently helped provide school clothing for 43 Head Start children. The shopping event, called Operation School Bell, was held at Marshalls March 21 and 23. Each child, accompanied by a parent, was allowed to go through the store to pick out school clothing and shoes. The clothing purchase was made possible by a $4,000 grant from the Solana Beach City Council, specifically for the Operation School Bell Program. ALRSD is grateful for the support in making this event a success.
It was heartwarming to see the children’s excitement and joy as they browsed the clothing racks, picking out items that fit their style and personality. It was clear that this event brought them a sense of happiness and empowerment. The parents, too, were grateful for the opportunity to provide their children with new clothing and shoes for the school year.
