Our Mission

Operation Warm is #morethanacoat

Operation Warm provides warmth, confidence and hope to children in need through the gift of brand new winter coats. We believe a brand new coat is more than a coat. Through serving millions of children in need across North America, we have seen that a brand new coat offers a child physical and emotional warmth, confidence to socialize and succeed, and hope of a brighter future.

Our Guiding Principles


Operation Warm creates brand new, high-quality coats for children in need, offering a child both physical and emotional warmth.


The gift of a brand new coat empowers children by sparking self-confidence in a way that second-hand clothing cannot. A new coat can help students attend school, socialize with their peers and play outside with pride.


Many families living in poverty struggle to provide necessities like food, housing, clothing and child care. The gift of a brand new coat offers hope to both children and their parents, reminding them there are those in their community that care about their well-being and future.

Give a Gift of Warmth

Every donation helps us manufacture and provide high-quality, brand new winter coats to children in need across North America.
