Winter Coat Initiative

We have teamed up with operation warm and area retail stores to bring warmth to the lives of many area children, this winter season.

We have already gifted 96 Coats and 80 pairs of Winter Hats and Mittens to Local Elementary Schools.

Maine winters can be harsh and cold. Our goal is to ensure that every child that needs a winter coat, hat, ski pants, gloves or mittens, receives them and feels the love and warmth from their community.
