Central Coast Funds for Children awarded ALSLO a grant to be used for the School Bell® philanthropic program

Assistance League of San Luis Obispo has received a $2,500 grant award from Central Coast Funds for Children. This grant will be used to support Assistance League’s Operation School Bell® philanthropic program.  The funds will be used to purchase new school-appropriate clothing for disadvantaged students in Kindergarten through 12th grade, living and attending school throughout San Luis Obispo County.

For many years Central Coast Funds for Children (CCFC) has been a significant supporter of Assistance League of San Luis Obispo County.  Like Assistance League, CCFC is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization that has been providing a hopeful pathway for children in need since 1994.  Funds are granted to local nonprofit organizations through a grant application process to benefit children’s programs in San Luis Obispo County. 

The goal of Operation School Bell is to provide new school clothing to 2,000 disadvantaged students during this school year. We are on track to exceed that number which means Assistance League will clothe one in seven of our County’s students who are living in poverty. “Our chapter and its member volunteers are greatly appreciative of the continued support shown by Central Coast Funds for Children and its recognition for the important work we are doing to assist families and students within our local communities,” said Helen Robertson, chapter president.

Assistance League is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization with no paid staff dedicated to fostering academic success by boosting self-esteem and improving the lives of students in our County. To date, Assistance League has provided new school clothing to more than 28,000 students throughout its 24-year history.
