More than 1,000 students from the Capistrano Unified School District have new clothing this month thanks to volunteers at the nonprofit Assistance League of Capistrano Valley.
Students from 27 CUSD schools were awarded $60 to $75 to purchase clothing at the Walmart in Laguna Niguel, and an additional $15 for shoes from Payless Shoesource, as part of the National Assistance League’s Operation School Bell program.
This year the local chapter budgeted $80,000 to the program, which is funded by sales from the organization’s Bargain Box Thrift Store in San Clemente. Sales also go to benefit military families at Camp Pendleton.
