Operation Warm

Since 2002, Operation Warm has inspired hope and empowered communities by manufacturing and distributing high-quality, new winter coats to more than 3 million children in need throughout North America. Every child deserves to be warm, but today families are struggling with tough choices and limited resources. Necessity dictates that food and shelter take precedence over clothing, but children without coats are often absent from school in the winter, unable to play outside or partake in activities, and suffer from low self-esteem as a result. Operation Warm’s 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.
