When is a coat more than just a coat? For children in need, it means a warm walk to school and the ability to play outside with friends. With Operation Warm our team has delivered nearly 500,000 new coats across North America.
Earlier this year we shared a story about a little girl, a kindergartener who Operation Warm was trying to help by giving her a larger size coat. The coat she had fit ok, but was starting to get a little snug and as all kids do, this girl was growing and would soon need a larger size coat to fit her. What made this story so heartwarming and heart breaking was how hesitant the little girl was to get a new coat.
