Make a Difference

From Issue: Volume XXI - Number 22

RICK RACKERS AUXILIARY of Assistance League provided school uniforms for every student at Bret Harte Elementary last week. Each year, the Rick Rackers “Operation School Bell” philanthropic program selects a school to clothe in support of National Make A Difference Day. Specifically, each of the students in this kindergarten through fifth-grade school received two complete school uniforms: two collared shirts, two pants (or shorts or skorts), under garments, socks, and a warm sweatshirt, along with a book and grade-appropriate school supplies. With the help of corporate partners, grants, and individual donations, new school uniforms have been provided to more than 70,000 in-need students since the program’s inception in 1974. For the 2013-2014 school year, Operation School Bell’s goal is to clothe 8,500 elementary and K-8 students.
