Operation Warm and Mars Associates Provide Kids with New Coats – Chicago 2018

Operation Warm and Mars associates teamed up to provide warm colorful coats to local children in need in Chicago.

On Tuesday, Oct. 2, employees from Mars visited Manierre Elementary School in Chicago to provide coats to kids in need with the help of Operation Warm.

“We want to be sure that every child is warm and smiling,” Anne Vela-Wagner, Mars says. “I think we are getting much more out of this. There’s a warmth in the room that I think is almost going to be warmer than the coats.”
