Many Thanks

The holidays have come and gone but the cold weather is settling in across the country. For many children, their new winter coat came just in the nick of time.  This is one of the best times of year for us at the Operation Warm office.  We begin to see the fruit of our labor and receive many thank you cards.  Here are the heartfelt sentiments sent to us from around the country:

“The Riverside Elementary School students, parents, staff and community would like to express our sincerest gratitude for the coats you provided. To you it may be just a coat, but to our students it’s the difference between a good or bad day. We appreciate you kindness and thoughtfulness”
-Tiashia Roberts, Counselor

“My son Zakai said ‘Thank You!’ the coat is a perfect fit. Looks like we got it just in time for the historic nor’easter”
-Angel (parent at Project Hope)

“Thank you for your generous donation of coats to Leake and Watts. We are truly delighted to be able to provide children and their parents in our programs with bright, beautiful but most importantly warm coats. The coats will be distributed to children from low-income communities in the Bronx who are part of our foster care, preventative services and Head Start programs. One of our program directors said that the coats were the best in-kind gift his program has ever received. We are grateful for the gift.’
Alan Mucatel, Executive Director
