We are so proud of Nik's efforts with Nik Runs the World to support our mission through his passion for running, and now he is receiving national recognition. Nik is one of two Prudential Spirit of Community Awards winners in Pennsylvania, and will travel to Washington DC for the award ceremony where 5 national honorees will be named. Great job Nik!

As another Rotary year turns over, we want to thank all of the clubs who partnered with us last year to bring happiness and warmth to thousands of children in their communities.  And we send our warmest wishes to all of the incoming District Governors, Club Presidents and all of the engaged Rotary leaders who change lives.  We look forward to working with Rotary Clubs in 2013-14!

Operation Warm helped distribute over 1,000 coats at Operation Brotherly Love in Philadelphia on Saturday, December 15th, 2012.  We’re delighted to be a part of this wonderful event that brings together so many giving people.  We want to thank Wawa and the other event sponsors for making this event possible.

Big thanks to our friend Rotarian Skip Rottkamp for a great job in discussion Operation Warm in District 7210 in the Hudson Valley area of NY. Thanks to Skip's leadership and the support of clubs throughout his district, over 1,000 local children living in need have received new Operation Warm winter coats. Take a listen and let us know what you think.

We received this note recently from a boy who got one of our coats. It perfectly expresses how we feel about +Bank of America  who today announced we have been awarded one of their Critical Needs grants. The grant is part of ongoing investments by the Bank of America Charitable Foundation to address immediate critical needs, such as hunger, shelter... and new warm coats for children in need. This investment in our organization will enable us provide even more children the joy and warmth that a new winter coat brings. Thank you Bank of America!

Every December we have the privilege of participating in Operation Brotherly Love where 1,500 Philadelphia kids get to have a blast and receive a new winter coat. One of our favorite days of the year!

We send a big thank you to our friends at International Delight and their great fans for Sharing their Delight with us for the kids we serve. Think for all those kids who will be warm, feel special and will be able to go to school on cold winter days. Thank you!

What's your flavor of International Delight?

Check out this new video by one of our wonderful partners in Chicago, Chicago Commons. They have been paving the way for families most at risk for poverty, violence and educational disadvantage in Chicago for nearly 120 years. We're proud we can help their children feel happy and special with new winter coats.
