Operation Warm underway in Kewaunee County

The Violence Intervention Project is spearheading Operation Warm in Kewaunee County again this year. The movement was begun in 1998 in Pennsylvania by Dick Sanford. The goal is to provide new or gently used coats and apparel for children and adults during the winter. Locally, there are two dates to know about. The coat drive runs through October 7th. You can drop off clothing at 22 locations across the county. Families registering for a coat must do so by October 18th. Danielle from VIP stresses the need to enroll prior to the distribution date.


Operation Warm also provides the ability to purchase new coats through its website. Last year over 100 coats were handed out in Kewaunee County alone.
