Operation Warm provides warmth, confidence and hope to children in need through the gift of brand-new winter coats...and now, shoes!
Our mission has always been focused on the whole child. Our tagline, ‘more than a coat’ means that the coats don’t just provide physical warmth, but also emotional warmth, the confidence to socialize and succeed, and hope of a brighter future.
We’re proud to say that over the last 22 years, the coat has become a bridge between our partners and families in need to access critical resources.
Our dedicated partnership team can build tailor-made programs that fit your organizations charitable goals.
“These Operation Warm events are some of our associates’ favorite day of the year. [Our employees] are so fortunate to give back to students in need. It’s definitely been a life changing experience and that’s why we have volunteers come back time after time.”
- Mackenzie Gusweiler, ANF Corporate Communications Manager
"While we always enjoy kicking off the year with our National Bagel Day celebration every January, this year, we're honored to once again join forces with Operation Warm to bring some warmth to those in need. Our hope is that Thomas' fans from all across the country will help us to bake up a wave of support for Operation Warm and 'toast' to a month-long celebration of supporting the organization's meaningful work."
- Eduardo Zarate, Senior Director of Marketing for Thomas'
