Groupon Throws Holiday Party for Families in Need

Our good friends at Groupon have partnered with Operation Warm since 2011 on annual cause marketing campaigns. And we’re so honored that this past year, for GivingTuesday, Groupon is featuring Operation Warm with a great promotional offer… donate $1 to Operation Warm through Groupon’s website and receive a promo code good for $10 off on your next Groupon Local purchase.

As part of this program, Groupon, Operation Warm and the Chicago Housing Authority teamed up to provide a surprise holiday party for 50 of Chicago’s neediest families. Of course, all children received brand new Operation Warm coats, and each child received three holiday gifts from their own “wish list.” In addition, each family received an additional three gifts.

Groupon employees volunteered to prepare the special party room and wrapped and tagged all of the presents. Take a look at the fun had by all through the spirit of Giving!
