On June 27th the Conshohocken/Plymouth Whitemarsh Rotary Club presented Operation Warm, Inc. with a $1,500 check to support the organization’s mission of providing new winter coats to disadvantaged children.
“We really appreciate Conshohocken/Plymouth Whitemarsh Rotary’s generosity over the years. This gift will help us reach children in the local community whose families cannot afford basic necessities, and enable them to attend school during the cold winter months,” said Operation Warm Development Manager Maureen Coulter.
Based in Chadds Ford, PA, Operation Warm is the country’s largest non-profit provider of new winter coats to children in need. It began as a Rotary project of Founder and Chairman Dick Sanford, who started out giving 58 coats to students at a local school who did not have one of their own. Since 1998, the organization has reached more than 1.2 million children in 41 states.
