The Impact of New Shoes
Operation Warm shoes enable children to play, feel confident, and most importantly - simply enjoy being kids. Through the gift of brand-new shoes, the children we serve can get active in their favorite colors, socialize with and make new friends, and get to and from school safely.
Why New Shoes?
In 2021, Operation Warm expanded our mission to include shoes that inspire confidence and encourage outdoor play. The addition of shoes gives us the opportunity to help children in need all year round.
To us, #morethanacoat means more than physical warmth, but also emotional warmth, the conﬁdence to socialize and succeed, and hope of a brighter future. We’re proud to say that over the last 23 years, our coat has become a bridge between our partners to families in need to access critical resources. We see shoes as the next step in our journey.
