Target demographics: Children living in need

Direct beneficiaries per year: 200,000 children through the gift of a brand new winter coat.

Geographic areas served: Throughout the U.S.

Programs: providing brand new winter coats for kids in partnership with Firefighters, Rotary clubs, radio stations, small and large businesses, churches, schools, foundations, local governments and social service agencies. The gift of a brand new winter coat brings a child happiness and warmth and empowers her to attend school and play outside on cold winter days.

Mission:
Since 1998, Operation Warm has provided new winter coats to at-risk children who live in need. Our vision is that every child wearing a new winter coat is warm, feels valued, and is empowered to get to school and gain an education, helping break the cycle of poverty.
Results:
Since 1998, Operation Warm has distributed approximately 1.4 million new winter coats to children in need. Our most recent surveys from recipient organizations reflect the following successes: Of those surveyed, 99% believed that the coat reduced the financial burden of their family. 75% believed the coats positively impact school attendance. 100% believed the coats had a positive impact on their children’s emotions and self-esteem. Survey respondents went on to state that the coats helped their children feel happy, smart, proud, and/or worthy.
