Operation Warmth is back!
It’s only possible with YOUR help and that is never lost on us.
On Saturday, January 25th, 2020 for the third year in a row we will be hitting the streets of Chicago to provide both warmth and joy to the homeless of our city. What enables us to so is the generosity of our supporters who provide us with donated coats, hats, gloves, scarves, and socks that go to those in desperate need. What motivates us to do so is that giving back means more than just lip service and that call to action gives us the energy and excitement to bring a smile onto another person’s face that probably hasn’t had one in a while. Those who are down on their luck may suffer from a range of issues such as mental health, substance abuse, or countless other things. We all know someone in our lives who suffers from those areas and the chance to help a fellow wanderer out is one too good to pass up.
You can visit our ‘Operation Warmth’ tab to learn more and see the impact that our brigade has been able to make over the past few years with our efforts. If you’d like to contribute items please give us a shout and we’ll coordinate a way to retrieve from you and if you’d like to contribute a donation we’ll take that too as all funds will go towards purchasing these items for distribution on January 25th.
What exactly is happening here?
Simple People, Doing A Simple Thing
In 2017, a group of friends got inspired. We were inspired by our hometown, we were inspired by in its inhabitants, we were inspired by its energy. Most of all we were inspired by the amazing philanthropic efforts of our fellow citizens, including a local man who tends to sport a 3 hat, but at our core, we were inspired by the belief that every person can make an impact if they just care enough to take that chance.
This city is more than just the place we pay taxes to, it’s home. It’s the streets on which we run, it’s the spots we eat and play, it’s the stages our idols rock out to, and it’s the place that never stops believing. We BELIEVE in this city and we BELIEVE that everyone in it deserves the chance to pursue their own dreams!
Yeah, but no, like what are you all DOING though…
What that first paragraph didn’t answer your question? Fair enough. If you navigate up top and click those buttons you can brush up on where we’ve been so far. Our acts up to this point were possible solely because of the kindness and loving hearts of those who pick up what we’re trying to lay down. All subsequent chapters of our journey will follow that same logic. Our goal is to simply serve as the BRIDGE between people who are doing dope things, people who have an interest in supporting such things, and most importantly people in need. We firmly believe that you don’t need to be a massive 501c3, school, government-sponsored agency, or religious group to make an impact. You can just be a good person with other good people and get it done. We’re hoping to prove that theory as a ‘charity’ in Chicago and would love for you to be a part of that ride.
