Help us Ensure Every Child is #SchoolReady
For the third year in a row, Operation Warm is setting out to make sure every student has the resources they need to be School Ready.
To us, being #SchoolReady is more than having the right school supplies, it's about having EVERYTHING you need to get to and from school safely, socialize with confidence, and have the proper attire to access all of the opportunities school is able to offer. Between 2015 and 2022, back to school shopping spending has increased over 50% per child. For families struggling to make ends meet, this expense means making tough choices between supplies and the basic apparel their child will need to succeed all school year.
Just $45 provides a brand-new coat and pair of shoes to a student living in need this back-to-school season.
"The gift...is more than a piece of clothing; it provides a sense of security, comfort, and self esteem for kids and parents needing an act of kindness and concern. It tells them they matter and people care."
