BrightStar Care of Central Milwaukee spearheads donation drive for Operation Warm to help supply new winter coats to children in need before the start of the 2017-2018 school year.
BrightStar Care of Central Milwaukee, a home care and medical staffing agency, will be collecting funds throughout the year for Operation Warm, whose mission is to provide brand-new winter coats to children in need. “Giving a child in need a new winter coat helps improve self-confidence, peer acceptance, school attendance and overall wellness,” said Andy Eyers, owner of BrightStar Care of Central Milwaukee. “That new coat can make a big difference to these kids by increasing their confidence and self-pride, not to mention keeping them warm.”
Operation Warm works year-round to create brand new, colorful winter coats made just for kids. This year, BrightStar Care of Central Milwaukee is collecting donations to directly benefit children in the city. “Every $20 provides a high-quality, brand new winter coat to a child who needs it most,” noted Eyers.
Since 1998, Operation Warm has inspired hope by manufacturing and distributing high-quality, new winter coats to more than 2 million children in need throughout the U.S. By actually manufacturing the coats it distributes, Operation Warm is able to efficiently control logistics, costs and inventory.
