Operation Warm and the Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation of Philadelphia proudly celebrated the culmination of their second annual Driving Away the Cold campaign.

Driving Away the Cold is a signature program of the Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation and Operation Warm. Since the program’s inception, the Foundation has kicked off this special campaign with a donation to provide 10,000 coats to the less fortunate children of the Philadelphia area. It then continues its philanthropic giving by conducting a special Driving Away the Cold month, where local participating dealers pledge one additional coat when a vehicle is sold at his or her dealership during that particular month. The 2009 Driving Away the Cold month took place in September and involved 118 participating dealers who collectively contributed support for an additional 7,878 coats to this year’s efforts, making the 2009 donation total top more than 17,000 new winter coats! With the help of Operation Warm, the coats were distributed via 65 area agencies, shelters and more!  Since January of 2008, the Driving Away the Cold campaign has provided more than 36,000 new winter coats to underprivileged children in the Greater Philadelphia region.
