EQT Foundation Gives a Gift of Warmth

Thanks to a generous grant from the EQT Foundation, Operation warm was able to provide brand new winter coats to 1,000 children from several counties in Southwestern Pennsylvania and West Virginia this winter. The EQT Foundation supports nonprofits in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Kentucky and Virginia to provide support to projects that help make a difference on critical issues in our society, including providing basic needs to under-served children. EQT believes in giving back to the communities in which they work and their support allows us to give the gift of warmth to children living in need in those communities.

Kids receive Operation Warm coatsFor the past seven years, EQT has worked with Operation Warm to provide brand new winter coats to children living in need in the company’s operating area. The foundation has provided not only generous grant funding, but also employee volunteer hours at our coat distribution events. Operation Warm is so grateful for the continued support of the EQT Foundation!
