As it has for its past 60 years, Assistance League of Chaves County is conducting its Operation School Bell program to help kids in need get a good start in Chaves County school districts, grades K-8. But during this COVID-19 pandemic, it won’t be business as usual this fall. There will be some changes to protect the safety of families and member volunteers. All local school and state health protocols will be in effect for distributing the items.

As usual, children and families will receive their items at the Assistance League chapter house located at 2601 N. Aspen Ave. in Roswell. The shelves are stocked with items to help children prepare for the school year: brand new shirts, pants, jackets, socks, underwear, Target shoe gift cards, hygiene kits and books. Assistance League continues to appreciate donations in support of purchasing. For more information, call 575-622-5255.
