Operation Warm – 20 Years, 3 Million Children Served


The 2018-19 coat season was Operation Warm’s most impactful year to date. Millions of children across North America have experienced a gift of warmth, confidence and hope through a brand new Operation Warm coat.

Words can’t express the gratitude we have for our donors, partners and supporters. Our work together achieved several amazing milestones this past season. Thank you!

  • December 2018 marked our 20th anniversary of providing brand new coats to kids in need
  • This past year, we provided 405,000 coats in over 1,200 communities across North America
  • By February 2019, we served our 3 millionth child
  • We expanded our efforts to serve more children with our Employee Volunteer and A Warm Welcome to the Library programs
