It's getting cold out there and you know what that means! Time to bundle up!
Nearly one in five children live in poverty in our communities. Many families are forced to decide between food, rent, heat, and medicine. That means the many children may have to go without a coat during the cold winter months.
You can help to bring hope, happiness and warmth to children living in need in NEPA with the gift of a brand-new winter coat. Your gift will help to improve a child's self-esteem, school attendance and overall wellness.
Operation Warm is the organization we've teamed up with to provide warm winter coats to kids in need in our area. Learn more about they manufacture their own coats and are meeting a need across the nation.
If you or a family you know of has a child in need of a good winter coat this year, check the list below for local schools and organizations who will be receiving coats from Bundle Up. We recommend contacting the principal of the child's school district for details of how and when coats will be distributed.
