29 Oct Operation Warmth
Providing warmth, confidence and hope to children in need
Approximately 11% of the families in Cobb County live in poverty. A warm coat is essential during the winter months, especially for children who may be playing outdoors during recess or walking to and from the school bus each morning.
In 2009, the late Barbara Hickey—a champion for community support in Cobb County—noticed a school secretary handing out winter coats to some of the students and Operation Warmth was born.
The Junior League of Cobb-Marietta (JLCM) has partnered with Operation Warmth to provide warmth, confidence and hope for children in need through the gift of brand new coats. Last fall, JLCM donated more than 100 coats to children from low-income families; however, the number of coats needed continues to grow. Help us bring the gift of warmth this fall!
