Our favorite winter giving tradition is back for the fifth year. Operation Warm Hearts will take place Tuesday, December 3, from 7 a.m. – 6 p.m.
in front of the Board of Education. Once again, this year’s event is being held in connection with the national
Giving Tuesday initiative and the 901's #GiveMemphis campaign.

Last year, our donations totaled over $18,000, including hundreds of coats, hundreds of other winter clothing items and over $6,000 in monetary donations to purchase more items. This year, we’re hoping to support even more students!
Here are the items we are collecting for students:
