Other Ways to Give
It really does take a village, or in our case, a nation to provide brand new winter coats to children in need. We are grateful to the many individuals and organizations who provide in-kind donations and financial support for this mission. We appreciate every single donor, supporter, and helper.
If you can’t afford to donate to Operation Warm, there are other ways you can support our mission to help to children in need. Learn how you can give products and services to help local children in need stay warm this winter.
Donate Items or Services
Whether you are a major corporation, a small business or an individual, you may have items or services that would be extraordinarily helpful to Operation Warm. In-kind support means a reduction in our overhead costs, allowing more pennies on the dollar to go directly to program costs – brand new coats for children.

New Computer and electronics supplies
