#ThankATeacher for All They Do

National Teacher Day takes place today, Tuesday May 5, as part of National Teacher Week. Operation Warm thanks all of America’s teachers for their service to our nation’s children and our future. We’re grateful for all of the “extras” they do in time and fortune to care and provide for their students’ basic needs, as well as educating them.

Teachers are an integral part of Operation Warm’s work. A teacher can’t help but notice when a child comes to school in freezing weather wearing only a thin hoodie. A teacher will spring into action out of concern for a student who lacks a basic necessity like a warm coat. Many of them ask us for help, knowing what a difference new, warm coats would make to their students’ health, attendance, and comfort. And when Operation Warm is able to help a school in need, it’s the teachers who are there to help hand the coats out and to see the smiles they bring to children’s faces. Listen to teachers talk about what Operation Warm means to them in the video below.

Give thanks to your favorite teacher today on social media, with the hashtag #ThankATeacher!
