Give a Single Mom a Gift: Warmth for Her Child
All moms deserve our thanks this Mother’s Day, but none more so than single moms. Operation Warm meets so many amazing single moms who are struggling to make ends meet while doing the job of two people. Even facing homelessness, unemployment, or a limited income, a single mom will find the strength to provide for her family, because her children are her world!
New coats are a blessing when the kids have already grown two sizes this year, and their jackets barely fit. At many a coat distribution, we’ve seen a mom cry tears of joy and gratitude knowing her children are warm. We’ve seen her excitement and relief as she snaps photos of her child with a new coat. Without a doubt, the coat is not only a gift to the child, but to their mom as well.
This Mother’s Day, celebrate those heroic single moms by giving them a hand up. Your donation of a new coat for a child today means a grateful mom with one less struggle to face this winter.
Once you’ve donated, dedicate your gift to your own mom with a special Mother’s Day eCard!
Or, honor your mother year-round when you join our monthly giving program. Your gift of only $10 a month provides six brand new winter coats that positively impact vulnerable young lives.
Thank you for supporting our mission, and lending a hand to some of the hardest-working moms out there.
