Back to School – Give New Coats to Kids in Need

Be a Hero for a Child in Need this Back to School Season

Nearly 14 million children live in poverty across the United States. Back-to-school can be a difficult time for families barely making ends meet.


For families on an extremely tight income, purchasing backpacks, school supplies and clothing is difficult enough. Quite often, there is simply not enough left over to purchase a coat to help their children get to school on those rainy and cold days.

Giving a Gift of Warmth

For nearly 20 years, Operation Warm has been manufacturing colorful, high-quality coats and giving them away to children who need them most.
You can help a child in need back-to-school season by providing a brand new coat that will last them all winter long.
