School time is almost here! In preparation for the new school year, Union Rescue Mission partnered with Operation School Bell and UCLA School of Nursing to provide much needed supplies and services to the families of URM.
Operation School Bell is a service project of the Assistant League of Southern California, where they provide new clothing, shoes and personal grooming products to over 5,500 children from families with need every year. On September 2nd, they partnered with Union Rescue Mission where they provided these much needed school supplies to 230 children from Union Rescue Mission and the Skid Row area.
Over 50 volunteers from the Anne Banning Auxiliary, Huron Consulting and the LAPD Explorers Program provided personal attention to the kids, fitting them with new clothes and new shoes for the school year.
After picking out a new backpack, children were able to pick new books and school supplies, such as notebooks and pencils. The children will be all ready to go for the new school year!
In addition to school supplies, Union Rescue Mission also partnered with UCLA School of Nursing to provide much needed health care to families. Both parents and children were able to receive physical exams and immunizations.
Thank you Operation School Bell and UCLA School of Nursing for blessing families with much need care and supplies!
