GIFFIN participated in multiple Operation School Bell events at Harwood, Pontiac Owen, and Nolan Elementary this fall.
Members and community volunteers set up a “store” in designated schools on scheduled days, helping children choose a new coat, hat, gloves, tops, socks, and hygiene kit. Since 1995, 54,490 lives have been positively impacted from clothing distributions. This year 5,704 recipients benefited at 20 distributions sites.
Operation School Bell is organized and run by the Assistance League organization. Assistance League of Southeastern Michigan, founded in 1993 and serving Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb counties, is a nonprofit, 100% volunteer organization.
