Operation Warm and Hollister Co. Provide Kids with New Coats – NYC

SHARE:

Operation Warm and Hollister Co. partnered to provide warm, colorful coats to NYC children in need.

On Thursday, Nov. 2, employees from Hollister Co. visited PS 142 to provide coats to kids in need with the help of Operation Warm.

“The whole region comes together, we have over 50 managers, and we’re handing out coats to the entire elementary school,” Kevin, Hollister Co., said.

“What I really love is how they react to it. There was one kid, his name was Jacob and he put his jacket on, a red and grey jacket and he started wiggling, because a lot of kids, they don’t really have access to winter coats, we don’t know what they’re going through, so this is just a way for us to help and volunteer and just get to know the kids… they are so sweet!” ChiChi, Hollister Co., said.
