Operation Warm and Unique Industries Provide Kids with New Coats – Philadelphia

Operation Warm and Unique Industries partnered to provide warm, colorful coats to Philadelphia children in need.

On Wednesday, Oct. 25, employees from Unique Industries visited F. Amadee Bregy School in Philadelphia, PA to provide coats to kids in need with the help of Operation Warm.

“We emailed out to all of our associates telling them they could volunteer to help with this charity event and we got an overwhelming response,” says Craig Novak, President-CEO of Unique Industries. “Everybody is really looking forward to being here today and I think they’re really having an awesome time.”

“It’s my town and I have a house and I have a car and I have a job and you don’t think about children who live down the street from you or even next door to you having no jacket,” says Alyssa Capezzano, Unique Industries. “For me it’s being appreciative and having a humbling experience.”
