It’s time for 2014 OPERATION WARM!
The Oklahoma City Local 157 is thrilled to partner with Operation Warm to donate coats to underprivileged children in the metro area. Providing the gift of warmth to children in the communities they protect, Oklahoma City Firefighters have become ambassadors of Operation Warm.
There are approximately 223,000 children in Oklahoma living in poverty according to the Kids Count Data Center website. But just $34 buys a winter coat for a child that is MADE IN THE USA, and last year the Local 157 was able to provide over 500 coats to the entire Greystone Upper Elementary School.
Visit the Operation Warm website (https://donate.operationwarm.org/page/contribute/oklahoma ) to make an online donation or you may mail a donation to the Local 157 Office at:
OKC Local 157
157 N.W. 6th Street
Oklahoma City, OK 73102

Also, don’t forget that many businesses offer matching gifts programs for employees, so be sure to ask your company if they would like to match your personal contribution.
Thank you for supporting Operation Warm!
