Coats for Kids Wish List

Today, over 106,000 children need coats across the United States

Operation Warm receives requests everyday from teachers, shelters and nonprofits serving children in need asking for Operation Warm coats. They join our Coats for Kids Wish List, in hopes someone will help provide warmth and self-confidence for their children through the gift of brand new coats.
Unfortunately, we currently lack the funding needed to grant this wish to most of these organizations, but you can help make this wish come true. Through December 31st, online donations will be DOUBLED! Every $20 will provide TWO brand new coats for children who need it most.

The Neighborhood CHurch

Goal Reached!

The Neighborhood Church serves primarily residents of public housing in Philadelphia. Their focus is to “put the love back into the community,” and help change lives. It is a small church that does not have the resources to provide all that is needed for their mission.

Thank you to all of the donors who became heroes to these children in Philadelphia, giving them much-needed protection against the brutal winters of Pennsylvania. 


Travelers Aid Society -Metropolitan Detroit

Goal Reached!

Travelers Aid Society of Metropolitan Detroit has been supporting families since 1923. They help Detroit-area homeless and displaced families get back on their feet and become self-sufficient.

Thank you to our generous donors who made it possible for these Detroit children to go outside in their brand new coats and play with their friends.
