The Rotary Club of Youngstown is joining Operation Warm to raise $10,000 for new, high-quality winter coats to give to Youngstown’s Harding Elementary School students and children in need.
Operation Warm is a national charity that has provided new winter coats to more than one million children across North America in just over a decade.
Last year Youngstown Rotary raised $4,000 and provided 200 children with new coats. The club plans to provide at least 500 children with new coats this fall.
Every $20 contributed provides one child with a new winter coat.
A printable donation form is available at www.youngstownrotary.org or email firstname.lastname@example.org for information.
The Rotary Club of Youngstown meets at noon on Wednesdays for lunch at the YMCA, 17 N. Champion St.
