The Board of Education of the San Bernardino City Unified School District recently presented the Outstanding Community Partner Award to the Assistance League of San Bernardino, a longtime supporter of San Bernardino district students.

For decades, the Assistance League of San Bernardino has had an impact on the San Bernardino City Unified School District community through its efforts to support children in need. Its projects include providing clothing to at-risk students and offering a dental program.

Many past and present San Bernardino Board of Education members have performed at the Assistance League of San Bernardino’s annual fundraiser, the Headdress Ball, according to a news release.

That event is the league’s chief fundraiser, allowing the nonprofit to provide low-cost and, in some cases, free dental services to people ages 5 to 25. The Assistance League also runs Operation School Bell, which helps provide clothing for needy children from kindergarten to senior year by sending them shopping for new clothing for free.

By addressing basic needs, the Assistance League helps to remove barriers to learning and promotes student success, Dorie Stratton, Assistance League’s vice president of resource development and principal of San Andreas High School, said in the news release.

“We are deeply honored to receive this award from SBCUSD,” Stratton said. “It is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our volunteers, as well as the impact of our programs on the lives of those we serve.”
