Operation Warm’s tagline is ‘more than a coat.’ In addition to providing physical warmth, the organization gives kids the confidence and hope they need to succeed. “Giving a child a new coat can truly be a transformative experience,” said Tamria Zertuche, President & CEO of Ferrellgas. “It gives them a little boost every time they put it on, no matter what struggles their families may be facing. That’s why our company is so proud to support Operation Warm and its mission. It truly makes a difference for so many children, and it’s one more way we can Fuel Life Simply for them and their families.”

In addition to helping with Operation Warm’s national efforts, Ferrellgas will also be holding two coat distribution events this year, including one at Crestview Elementary School in Kansas City, Missouri, on October 26th. Several Ferrellgas employee-owners will be volunteering that day to help give out the coats to students.
Operation Warm will also be taking over Ferrellgas’ social media channels throughout the month to help promote the organization’s important mission, and Ferrellgas will be sharing information about Operation Warm with customers via email and its website. “Collaborative efforts like the one with Ferrellgas are cornerstone initiatives that bring our mission to life,” said Grace Sica, Executive Director of Operation Warm. “By working together, we don’t just provide essential warmth during the winter months, but we also fuel the confidence and resilience needed for children to succeed throughout the year.”
As we head into winter, Ferrellgas recognizes that many people may need help providing for their families this year. “As a company that supplies the propane that heats millions of American homes, supporting Operation Warm is a natural fit for us,” said Zertuche. “Every child deserves to feel warm, safe, and loved.”
