Fire Fighters for Operation Warm

INSPIRE HOPE. EMPOWER CHILDREN. JOIN THE MOVEMENT.

Since 2012, fire fighters across North America have partnered with Operation Warm to provide brand new winter coats to children in need in the communities they protect. Hundreds of fire fighters  have joined our mission to positively impact the lives of children – helping to increase their school attendance, self-esteem, and overall health & well-being.

Over the last several years, the Fire Fighters for Operation Warm program has provided over 300,000 coats to children who need them most.

“Ocean City Firefighters were involved last year and we helped by going out and putting coats on the kids in the schools,” Bragg says. “We see the need when we go into people’s homes but that’s not necessarily the time or place to ask them about needing coats, we can’t just be like ‘Hey, where’s your coat?’ We just knew there was a need in our community and we wanted to be a part of that.”
