Nemours+ Operation Warm
Nemours/Alfred I. duPont teamed up with Operation Warm to reach and engage children and families in Delaware. The coat giving events were held in the Wilmington and Dover communities. Children were selected to receive the coats through a variety of civic organizations. They were invited to attend the event with their family to receive a new coat – and they were invited to have a lot of fun!
500 Coats Donated
400+ Volunteer Hours
- In Dover, coats were distributed at Delaware State University. The Delaware 87ers basketball team, flight squad, Caesar the Fox and Joe Richmond, former Harlem Globetrotter provided entertainment for all.
- In Wilmington, coats were distributed at the William C. Hicks Anderson Community Center. In addition to receiving a brand new coat, families enjoyed entertainment, activities, goodies and more.
“It’s very important to us as an organization that promotes children’s health, to ensure that children have what they need to survive the winter in a very healthy way.”
