Operation Warm’s mission is to provide brand new winter coats to children in need. The gift of a new winter coat inspires hope and empowers children to attend school regularly and have strong self-esteem.
Operation Warm was founded in 1998 when our founder, Dick Sanford, saw the need in his community for warm coats for at-risk children. What began as a gesture motivated by sadness and concern grew into a passion and our mission.
We were founded on the conviction that children born in poverty have less than a fair chance to thrive. We applaud organizations which supply “gently worn” garments. However, we believe giving a child in need a new winter coat has an immeasurable effect on their families:
- Pride in ownership
- A tangible boost in self-esteem and peer acceptance
- Improved school attendance
- Likelihood of two nutritious meals at school through the Free or Reduced Lunch Program
- Ability to play and socialize outside
- Relief related to stretching limited funds for clothing, food, heat, or housing
Operation Warm has grown from one man into a nationwide program that reaches 49 states, parts of Canada, and has touched the lives of 2 million children.
