IGS Energy + Operation Warm

Partnership Overview

For the third year in a row, IGS Energy and Operation Warm partnered in 2016 with their “Bundle Up” campaign.  “Bundle Up” engaged IGS customers with an offer to donate a brand-new winter coat every time they subscribed for bundled energy services.  Additionally, IGS provided employees a volunteer opportunity at a local school gifting coats in-person to every student enrolled.  Employees were able to have a meaningful impact in the life of a child and be a positive contribution to the community.

3 Year Partnership

4,500 Coats Donated

40+ Employee Volunteers

IGS supports Operation Warm through…

  • Consumer-driven corporate donations
  • Social media promotions
  • Direct mail activation

“Operation Warm provides not just a coat, but what a NEW coat can represent - the ability to come to school on a really cold day, the access to breakfast and lunch, and the opportunity to stay focused on learning.”
-Principal, IGS Beneficiary School

"I got a really brand-new coat I'll wear everyday. I'm never going to take it off."

“The partnership we have built with Operation Warm has exceeded our expectations. In addition to a wonderful message to our customers, we’ve received an overwhelmingly positive response from our employees. When those employees were able to participate in a coat donation event – to see the faces of the kids receiving the coats and hearing what it meant to those kids – it solidified their commitment to the partnership. ”
