Last fall, Operation Warm launched its new College and University Program at The University of Penns

Members of Penn’s Panhellenic and MultiCultural Greek sororities raised funds by having bake sales, soliciting friends, parents and fellow students, bringing in over $4,500. That allowed the group to provide new coats to over 300 students at the nearby Alexander Wilson School, a public elementary school about a half mile from the campus.

Each student at The School was required to bring an empty plastic bottle, which is part of Operations Warm’s green initiative that will soon feature new coats that are made of recycled plastic bottles. Next year members of the sororities plan to continue their efforts and select another school in Philadelphia.
