Other Ways to Give
We are grateful to the many individuals and organizations who provide in-kind and financial support for our work.
Thanks to the support of so many, we have provided new winter coats to 1.4 million children living in need.
There are many ways you can support our mission to provide new winter coats to children in need:
Donate items or services (in-kind donations)
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.
- Transportation Services
- Social media/marketing/public relations
- Graphic design
- New computer and office supplies
- Cause marketing and partnerships
- Silent Auction/raffle items (both low and high end items)
You can also donate a vehicle through our Vehicle Donation Program. You'll not only help us provide new coats to more children living in need, you can also claim a tax deduction! Click here to learn more and get started with a vehicle donation.
