All across America there are families struggling to meet their basic needs. By donating money for NEW winter coats, you help relieve the burden of poverty and bring the gift of happiness and warmth to children in need. To date, Operation Warm has given new winter coats to over 1.7 MILLION children throughout America and beyond. A brand new Operation Warm coat gives a child newfound freedom and confidence to play more, learn more, and do more. In tandem with our primary mission, we launched our Made in the USA program in 2013, and now 20% of our coats are Made in America. These coats not only bring warmth and joy to impoverished children; they also create new American jobs. We invite you to become our partner, a hero in your community, and help ensure that all children feel warm, healthy and valued.
For many Oklahoma City families, warm coats are a luxury they simply cannot afford. 90% of Oklahoma City Public School families live in poverty. For them, basic needs are a real struggle. Thousands of OKCPS students could go without warm coats this winter. Imagine thousands of children walking to school cold or waiting at bus stops in freezing temperatures. In the worst cases, children simply won’t go to school on the coldest winter days. The leaders of the OKCPS Coat-A-Kid program face great odds. Nevertheless, they are rising to the challenge and fundraising is in full swing for this winter! Their goal: raise enough to purchase brand new winter coats for more than 7,000 students!Learn More
