helping children stay warm and happy all winter long
He arrived at school shivering. Despite the freezing temperatures of a Pennsylvania winter, this six-year-old didn’t have a coat to protect him from the cold.
Poverty like this is all too real in communities across the country. Just think about these numbers – nearly 1 in 5 kids live in poverty in the United States. Children in need face many obstacles growing up. They don’t get enough food and miss out on opportunities at school. They are more likely to get sick and are at higher risk of being physical harmed. At Operation Warm we believe that every child deserves to be warm, joyful and feel empowered, especially around the holidays.
We believe that together we can win the fight against child poverty. If caring people like you join us, then we can help children in need stay warm and safe this holiday season.
