Creating an Innovative Program to Help More Kids in Need

While Operation Warm provides hundreds of thousands of brand new winter coats each year through the help of its generous donors, partners and supporters, we believe this is far from acceptable when more than 15 million US children are living in poverty. This is our mission, to put as many coats on kids in need as possible. It is a big goal, but one that we believe is reachable, as long as Operation Warm continues to look forward and respond not only to the needs of the children and families we serve, but also our supporters.

It is this commitment that has lead to a new initiative. Through Operation Warm’s innovative Employee Volunteer Program, businesses are offered the opportunity to make a powerful impact in their communities, while responding to the growing need of their employees to make a tangible difference in the world. Modern job seekers surveyed say they look for a socially responsible company that offers them an opportunity to volunteer.

“Businesses want to do more than simply write a check; they want to bring more value to their employees and culture,” says CEO and founder, Dick Sanford. Through conversations with corporate leaders, he learned that there was a critical need for nonprofit partnerships that provided not just a way to show corporate responsibility, but also offer a hands-on volunteer opportunity for employees.

Through the Operation Warm Employee Volunteer program, companies who come on board with the mission have the opportunity to offer their employees the experience of delivering brand new winter coats to children in need in their communities.
