About the Event

Presented by Assistance League of Los Angeles, Operation School Bell, and McDonald’s Owner-Operators of Southern California, Prom Day is an annual event that serves 200 high school female-identifying students from the Los Angeles Unified School District who are experiencing homelessness or in foster care.

These girls have maintained their grades and are on track to graduate, while simultaneously managing extremely difficult life circumstances.  At the event, they will have the chance to step into a “pop-up” boutique and choose (and keep!) their ideal prom outfit—at no cost. The League provides prom dresses, shoes, accessories, make-up, and more! Without our services, these girls would be unable to attend their Prom.

About Operation School Bell

Prom Day is organized by members of our Operation School Bell program which helps vulnerable elementary-age children get to school and stay in school.  

LAUSD Title I schools and partner organizations identify those children in greatest need and bring them to our Hollywood facility where they each receive new school clothing, grooming products, a backpack, sneakers, school supplies, a book, and a small toy or board game. However, children come away with more than new items–they leave with a sense of joy, heightened self-esteem, and hope for the future.
