On Monday, August 15th the Assistance League® of Ventura County brought their Operation School Bell® program to Tierra Vista Elementary School in Oxnard to distribute clothing and supplies for the new school year. This program has been going strong since 1993, providing the necessities for children and families in the community. As President Lori Nasatir expressed, “The goal of this program is to make sure children are going into their year equipped with not only clothing and supplies, but hopefully a new sense of confidence as well”. On this occasion they provided clothing, books, and school supplies to over 450 students and family members. The success of this event couldn’t have happened without the school staff and the many Assistance League® volunteers, including members from the Assisteens® and the Nancy R. Brandt groups (two auxiliaries within the organization).
