The Assistance League has 120 chapters across the United States. One of the Assistance League’s programs, Operation School Bell, assists children in need by providing clothing and school supplies. Started over 50 years ago, The Assistance League has grown across the United States and has been operating a local chapter in Santa Clarita for over 20 years.
The Chairman for 20th annual Footsteps 5K Run/Walk, Gloria Regan, believes everyone is a winner whether they take home a medal or not because all of the proceeds from the Footsteps 5K Run/Walk will go to Operation School Bell. The money raised from the program will stay in the Santa Clarita Valley.
