A New Coat to a Child in Poverty is #MoreThanACoat
Giving your second-hand clothing to a coat drive is not a new concept. With over 15 million children across the U.S. living at or below the poverty line, every little bit we give helps families who struggle to make ends meet.
But Operation Warm is different. Since 1998, we’ve seen the difference the gift a brand new winter coat can make on a child in need.
We believe a new winter coat can be #morethanacoat. We believe it can tell a child who can’t fend for themselves, “You’re worth it.”
Join our supporters and other Home Linens Collection shoppers in supporting Operation Warm. Your donations will go towards providing brand new winter coats across the United States.
Over 15 million U.S. children - nearly 1 in 5 kids - live at or below the poverty line.
Giving a New Coat Helps Improve:
Giving a child something brand new creates a sense of pride in ownership that fosters self-confidence in children who may feel insecure.
The #1 way to break the cycle of poverty is through education. New coats help children attend school more often on cold and rainy days.
It's hard to play outside, make snow angels, or build snowmen without a warm coat. All children should have a chance to keep active year-round.
