For the second year in a row, Hollister Co. has partnered with Operation Warm to provide new winter coats to children in need across the U.S.

Between November 29 and December 13, for every coat that is bought in a Hollister retail store or online, Operation Warm will give a child in need a new coat, up to 10,000 coats. In addition, from November 29 through Friday, December 2, Hollister will donate $1 to Operation Warm for each use of the Hollister + Operation Warm Snapchat Geofilter, up to $10,000. On top of that, Hollister employee volunteers will be visiting low-income elementary schools around the country to give out coats, hats and scarves.

“As a company, we support health and wellness programs that enrich the lives of children and teens and we are grateful that our strong partnership with Operation Warm allows us to do this in such a meaningful way,” said Kristin Scott, Brand President of Hollister Co. “We are excited for the continuation of this program and we are looking forward to providing new, warm coats for children across the country this holiday season.”

“Last year, we partnered with Hollister for the first time and were simply blown away by their overwhelming support to help children in need,” said Dick Sanford, Chairman & Founder of Operation Warm. “We are beyond excited to continue our partnership and discover new ways to help even more children across the country experience a gift of happiness and warmth through a new winter coat.”

We would like to thank Hollister Co. for their continued generous grant award, partnership, and volunteer service, which give children so much more than a coat. Wrapped up in each bright, warm coat is the opportunity to go to school, fit in with peers, and play outside during the cold winter months.
