About

Operation Warm is More Than A Coat, and you are More Than A Volunteer!

Our mission is to provide hope, happiness, and warmth through the gift of brand new winter coats. We are not a coat drive; rather we work directly with manufacturers to create our own line of carefully crafted, kid friendly coats. By creating our own coats we control the quality and cost, and ensure our brand new winter coats become a daily pride and joy for children in need. Many of the children we serve rarely feel the emotion associated with receiving something brand new that no one has previously owned before. Inside each coat is a permanent label that says, "Made Just for You!"

Help us staff our high energy, high impact coat giving events at elementary schools in your area. Work with other volunteers to give the gifts of warmth, confidence, and hope as students try on and select a colorful, kid-friendly coat to call their own. We serve approximately 500 children living in need at each one of our coat giving events. Volunteer recruitment begins in April to plan for the 2018-2019 season.
