Your Generosity Matters

Your support made a huge impact during the fall and winter season of 2019-2020. Thanks to generous people like you all across North America, more than 415,000 brand new coats were gifted to those in need. From small rural towns to major cities and everywhere in between, Operation Warm donors provided a gift of warmth, confidence and hope to many children.

The Local Impact of Operation Warm

Operation Warm donors should feel proud of the good they have done for their local communities. The impact of bringing warmth, confidence and hope to the children they serve goes beyond the physical gift of a brand new coat.

Thank You for giving the gift of happiness…

Quotes from students after receiving their brand new coats:

  • “I am going to wear this coat forever and ever.”
  • “It’s like wearing a hug!”
  • “It’s like being in my Pop-Pop’s warm blanket.”
  • “I really get to take this home?”
  • “I am happy today.”
  • “These are magic coats!”
