Help Needed for Colorado Wildfire Victims

In response to the ongoing wildfires raging through Colorado, Operation Warm has activated an emergency response effort and needs your help.

We need your support to raise the funds necessary to ship 1,000 coats to Colorado.  Working with the National Donations Management Network, these coats will go directly to the children of the families who have been displaced by these horrible wildfires and have lost many of their belongings and clothing.  So far, fires have destroyed hundreds of homes and forced more than 30,000 people to evacuate.

Through this relief effort, Operation Warm is mobilized to respond to an urgent need for help.  Getting coats to children is what we do, and with your help, we can ensure that the children in these communities are prepared for the soon-to-arrive cold weather. It may seem like a small thing, but a new coat will bring security and warmth to these frightened and confused children.  

Colorado averages 38” of snowfall per year, and over 169 days of temperatures below freezing.  It’s on its way, and will be here before we know it.  As we’ve seen from the fires, nothing stops Mother Nature.  Getting coats to children now will free up limited resources to rebuild the families and homes devastated by these horrible wildfires.
