Operation Warm provides warmth, confidence and hope to children in need through the gift of brand-new winter coats. Operation Warm partners with individuals, community organizations, and corporations across North America to provide children in need the gift of a brand-new coat. Through this, they provide these children with physical and emotional warmth, confidence to socialize and succeed, and hope of a brighter future. In 2019, the organization distributed approximately 410,000 coats to 1,200 different communities with the help of 800+ partners in the US and Canada. With a matching grant Operation Warm will receive from the Winnetka-Northfield Rotary Club, HPCF’s grant is being used to provide 200 high-quality brand new winter coats to low-income children attending North Shore School District 112 schools.
