Operation Warm and Wawa: Helping Children in the Delaware Valley

Today, Operation Warm was featured alongside Wawa on NBC10 of Philadelphia.  We’re celebrating our partnership of the 12,000+ children that have been given a new coat thanks to their organization and its employees.  Wawa’s support helps Operation Warm ensure children in need throughout the Delaware Valley/Philadelphia region receive new coats each fall before winter.

Wawa is a quick-service, convenience store chain that started as a dairy farming operation back in 1902 and a food market in 1964. Today, the privately-owned business has grown to a chain of more than 645 convenience retail stores across Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and Central Florida.

“I believe its our personal responsibility to help others,” explains Operation Warm founder Dick Sanford. “Wawa has been absolutely fabulous. We’ve been partners with Wawa and their team of individuals [for 15 years].”
