How Operation Warm Community Heroes Works

<Previous Next>

1. Select the Children

Nearly 20% of U.S. children live in poverty. Using the Free/Reduced Lunch Program as a guide, identify children who are in need of warm clothing – Title 1 elementary schools, shelters, anti-poverty programs, etc.  **www.elementaryschools.org is a great tool to help identify the need in your community.

2. Fund Your Program

After you’ve identified how many children you want to serve, set a fundraising goal based on how many coats you’ll need. We’ll supply you with a variety of fundraising tools to help you reach your goal.

3. Place Your Coat Order

Submit your order on our website, shipping is FREE within the U.S.

4. Give Out New Coats!

Ship coats to your beneficiary or gather your volunteers to hold a Community Coat Celebration event. There is no feeling quite like it!

“Our children were so excited to have received brand new winter jackets. The students are used to people promising them things and not fulfilling their promises. Our students were, and still are, extremely grateful!”
-Brittany Haley, R.T. Cream Family School
