Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

Our aim is to reach the 9,000 students in our 8 local communities who qualify for our Operation School Bell® Clothing Program that provides new school clothing to empower children and build self-confidence so they have a greater chance of success.

We are reaching out to local businesses and corporations to team up with us on what we call “Level the Playing Field Challenge". This campaign was developed to stress the importance of what new school clothes and shoes will do for the confidence and empowerment of our young leaders.

Along with the revenue of our Thrift Shop and Grants we hope to partner with local businesses to help us achieve our goal with our campaign “Level the Playing Field Challenge".

The numbers tell the real story, but the increase in chapter membership and interest of our programs within the community tells all.

We have been serving our communities since 1995. The first year we were able to help 50 elementary school children. With all of our programs today we were able to touch the lives of over 9,000 children, young adults and seniors.

We opened our first Thrift Shop in 2012. It has been such a great success we needed to relocate to a larger facility in September 2015.

What we would like to accomplish is having the funds to help all children and young adults and seniors in need. This will be ongoing so we have our work cut out for us. The positive is that we have a hard working membership that is committed to giving back to our communities.
