Operation Warm

Operation Warm brings happiness and warmth to disadvantaged children through the gift of brand new winter coats. We dream that every child wearing a new winter coat is warm, healthy and can get to school with pride on cold winter days. We hope that each child we reach believes, "I am of value." We witness first-hand the joy and confidence a child receives through one of our new winter coats. And we hear from teachers and social workers about the enormity of the need and tremendous impact that comes from the simple gift of a new winter coat. That’s why we say… Operation Warm. More than a Coat.

"I think we forget that every town, everywhere in the world there are people that are in need," Thomas said. "If we can take care of some of those people, let's take care of those people. And if I can shave my beard off to do that, that is a small price to pay."

Thank you Duluth Firefighters Operation Warm!!

"It's different from a normal coat drive where you might donate used coats. These are brand new, American-made coats," Pekol explained. "The kids will get to pick them out. It raises their feelings of self-esteem, their feelings of pride."
