Coats for Kids
Firefighters delivered coats to children in the foster care system at their Annual Holiday Party, December 2013
- Every 29 seconds, a child is born into poverty
- Operation warm has served 1.2 million children with new coats across America
- Coats are American-made, allowing for the opportunity to provide jobs to Americans
The Arlington County Fire Department has partnered with the Arlington Professional Firefighters and Paramedics Association and the Human Services, Child and Family Services Division to bring Coats for Kids to our community.
As part of Operation Warm, Arlington Firefighters delivered 107 new coats to children in the foster care system during their annual holiday party. However, more coats are needed for local children and the fire department is committed to supporting this year-round campaign.
Please join us in providing warmth and safety to children in our community by donating money to Operation Warm.
Money donated stays in our community to purchase coats for local children. A donation of $32 is enough to buy a coat and keep a child warm but all amounts are appreciated.
