Chicago Meteorologist Cheryl Scott Helps Promote our Impact Beyond Warmth Program with the CHA
We need to say a big THANK YOU to Chicago’s NBC5 meteorologist Cheryl Scott. When asked to throw out the first pitch at the July 3rd White Sox game, Cheryl wanted to find a way to share the experience. So, she invited Operation Warm to find a child whose family benefited from our signature program with the Chicago Housing Authority…the Impact Beyond Warmth new coat distribution and resource fair.
This event distributes new winter coats to over three thousand families living in Chicago Housing Authority and Choice Voucher housing, while connecting families with valuable social services, including educational, work force development and medical resources. The CHA selected Brandon Barnes, whose family received coats at last year’s event. Brandon plays little league ball, and it showed, as he fired a hard strike while Cheryl looked on in amazement.
In addition to thanking Cheryl and the White Sox, we need to thank the CHA for partnering with us for five years on this great event, and to JPMorgan Chase and PepsiCo for being our lead sponsors of the event. This year’s Impact Beyond Warmth event will take place on October 27, and we’re hoping that Cheryl will join us in handing out coats to great kids like Brandon.
