Step UP for Students
Step UP for Students (formerly known as Sock It to ‘Em) is the name of our annual mailing in August in which funds are sought to help support Operation School Bell®
, a nationally recognized philanthropic program of Assistance League of Kansas City.
Through the generosity of our donors each year, OPERATION SCHOOL BELL
provides new clothing to at risk school children in the Northland. Children are recommended by school officials and with the aid of member volunteers, shop for two complete outfits, a hat, gloves, underwear and socks. Each child also receives a book, shoe voucher and health kit.
For more than 22 years, individuals have “stepped up” and helped Assistance League provide new school clothing to more than 23,000 disadvantaged children. Every year there is more need than the year before.
A tax deductible donation of $90 will completely clothe one child, $180 will completely clothe two children and $250 will completely clothe three children.
To make a donation, make checks payable to Assistance League of Kansas City and mail to:
