Another successful year! On "Giving Tuesday" we conducted our 7th annual Operation Warm program providing 300 new winter coats to local children in need. With the help of the Boys & Girls Club of Dundee Township we made our way through 5 local grade schools to distribute various amounts of coats to select children at each school. Additional coats were given to the District 300 staff to have on hand and provide it to a child when it is really needed. Check out the full set of photos in the 2015 Operation Warm Photo Album. Additional photos taken by the Boys & Girls Club staff can be found via this link here:
In addition to this years coats we were able to purchase gloves for the children as well which were very much appreciated! None of this is possible without the support we get at our various fundraising events through out the year so we are more than happy to extend our gratitude too all those who support us. We would also like to thank the companies who made direct contributions and coat purchases to be included in our annual program.
The coats were well received and seeing the many happy faces was more than enough motivation to encourage us to do this year after year. We are very proud to service the Carpentersville community and enjoy every opportunity we have to do just that! See you next year!
