As part of Operation Warm, the Nashua Firefighters Union raised nearly $17,000 to purchase new winter coats for deserving
children in the Nashua area.
Nashua, NH – The Nashua Firefighters Union (International Association of Firefighters Local 789) will be delivering more than 370 new, American-made coats to needy children in the Nashua area.
“Operation Warm” is a national program created by the International Association of Firefighters to ensure that every child has a warm coat for the cold winter months. IAFF locals in hundreds of cities and towns are raising money to buy new winter coats for children in their own communities.
“Operation Warm is just another way that our members give back to the city we so proudly serve,” said John McAllister, President of the Nashua Firefighters Union. “We look forward to seeing the children’s smiling faces as we hand them their own new winter coats.”
In their second year of the program, the Nashua Firefighters Union raised nearly $17,000 – helping the union to purchase 372 coats that will be delivered to local children this week.
“This would not have been possible without the generous donations from local businesses and community groups. We look forward to continuing to expand Nashua’s Operation Warm until every child has a warm winter coat,” added McAllister.
Nashua Firefighters plan to buy 450 coats next year, and are already hard at work to raise the funds needed.
