Lynnwood Fire & IAFF 1984 Distribute Coats for Operation Warm

LYNNWOOD, WA (November 25, 2014) – Yesterday, College Place Elementary students received over 50 coats from the Lynnwood Fire Department’s International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) Local 1984 to help meet the needs of students during cold weather. Operation Warm is a national Non-Profit that was founded in 2002 with the singular mission to provide new winter coats to impoverished children.

In 2013, 25 IAFF locals from Washington participated in Operation Warm’s initiative – the largest amount of participation of any state. Raising almost $130,000, Washington firefighters distributed coats to over 4,000 local children. One thousand of those coats were funded by the partnership between 99.9 FM KISW “The Rock of Seattle” and the Washington State Council of Fire Fighters (WSCFF). Other monetary support includes $20,000 from the Gary E. Milgard Foundation and $10,000 from the Norcliffe Foundation.

In 2014, 40 WSCFF locals and Fire Departments are participating in Operation Warm. With a year under their belt, Washington locals are increasing their fundraising efforts – planning more events, attending more community gatherings, and reaching out to more businesses. With the continued support from KISW and the Milgard Foundation, Washington leads the way for other participating states. Passionate about the children in their communities, Washington firefighters are dedicated to giving back.
