Operation Warm distributes new coats to children in need through partnerships with organizations such as schools, shelters and social service agencies.  Please note:  We do not provide coats directly to families living in need.  If your family is in need of coats for your children, we suggest you ask your child’s school to contact us about setting up a local program or contact your local Salvation Army.  Organizations and service groups wishing to purchase coats from us for local families may do so through our Marketplace program, or may sign up to be on our waiting list.
