Wells Fargo + Operation Warm

Partnership Overview

Wells Fargo in Chicago began collaborating with Operation Warm in 2014. Each year, Wells Fargo adopts 10-11 Title I schools and nearly 10,000 Chicago children received brand new winter coats from Wells Fargo employees. Wells Fargo is also the lead corporate sponsor of our annual CHA-Operation Warm at which 10,000 children receive a coat while families are connected with valuable social resources.
