School Sends “Collective Valentine” to Kids in Need

We love hearing from schools who have adopted Operation Warm as a fundraising project.  In February, we received a check for over $900 from the Student Council of Sarah Gibbons Middle School in Westborough, Massachusetts, which they raised in only two weeks!  The students took a vote to choose a charity for their winter fundraiser, and Operation Warm resonated with them the most, especially with their cold New England winters.  They promoted their campaign through insightful morning announcements, with facts about that day’s weather and how long it would take to get frostbite without a coat!  They also made it a Valentine’s Day tie-in, and showed everyone the totals each day with a meter in the lobby.  Teacher and Council Advisor Heather Patrick encouraged a fun competition amongst homerooms, by matching every dollar brought in by her homeroom students.   The students tell us they were very happy to help out, and feel satisfied and proud of their results.  We are thrilled and thankful for their outstanding effort.  Thank you Gibbons Middle School for your generosity, and keeping children warm this winter!
