Giuliani Foundation Helps Keep Connecticut Children Warm
Operation Warm sends our thanks to the Amalia & Nicola Giuliani Foundation for Religion and the Arts for their support this past year. Thanks to their generous contribution, Connecticut children received new winter coats that helped them feel warm, health, and valued.
Operation Warm is so happy to partner with the Amalia & Nicola Giuliani Foundation for Religion and the Arts to serve impoverished children in the state of Connecticut. A coat distribution in December 2013 provided some terrific children a boost to their pride and self-esteem, and ensured they are poised to succeed. Given the unusually snowy and cold winter, the coats went to excellent use, preparing children for the freezing winter temperatures. Because of the Giuliani Foundation grant, children who were previously without warm coats were able to go sledding, build snowmen, and jump for joy when the snow led to early dismissal from school! Operation Warm’s beneficiaries share stories of heightened self-esteem because children no longer have to wear a coat they’ve outgrown, or need to share with a sibling. We were able to serve over 3,200 children in Connecticut this year, and we thank the Amalia & Nicola Giuliani Foundation and all our Connecticut donors for their support!
