OPERATION WARM: Clarksburg Firefighters to Provide 150 City Children with Winter Coats

By Connect Clarksburg Staff | October 28, 2017
This fall, over 150 Clarksburg children from low income families will receive brand-new winter coats courtesy of Clarksburg Fire Fighters. 
For the 4th consecutive year, Clarksburg Firefighters have partnered with "Operation Warm", a national non-profit dedicated to providing hope, happiness and warmth for children in need through the gift of new winter coats. The collaborative, community-based program has impact far beyond the Clarksburg area. Firefighters across the USA & Canada are bringing this program to the communities they protect.
This year, Clarksburg Firefighters will provide coats to children at North View and Adamston Elementary Schools.
“The need in our community for this program continues to grow.  Each year we are distributing more coats to area children.” stated Mark Walsh, Clarksburg Firefighter.
“Both the schools and the families look forward to this program.  It is definitely more than just a coat to the kids, schools, and families.”
Clarksburg Firefighters will arrive at each school personally fitting each child with a new coat, and helping them to write their name in the interior tag which reads, “Made Just for You.” With monetary support from the community, the firefighters are able to give the gift of warmth to these children right before the winter holidays.
