Assistance League of Greater Collin County held their annual Spring Fundraiser Luncheon and Fashion Show on April 6 at Heritage Ranch Clubhouse in Fairview. The proceeds from this event will benefit Operation School Bell®, a program that provides clothing for elementary school children in need in Greater Collin County.
Members and their guests heard Susan Oliver, retired counselor and Care Coordinator at Boyd Elementary in Allen ISD, tell of her experiences working with children who benefit from the Operation School Bell Program. She spoke of how the bags of new clothes “break the chains of poverty.” Attendance rates actually go up after clothes are distributed; the children gain confidence and their “lives are changed” by Operation School Bell.
Following lunch, Cynthia Elliot Boutique, located on McKinney’s Historic Square, presented a fashion show. Assistance League also honored Deanna Sanford, Connie Ryan, and Linda Castellano, community volunteers for the Wee Memories Program, with special awards.
We would like to thank Plano Profile for covering our event and taking some great pictures.
