Another school year is beginning, and we will be sending our precious children to school to learn all they can. With the winter months fast approaching some children will miss school; not because they don't want to go to school, but because they don't have a proper winter coat to go to school in. This is where Operation Warm and you can make all the difference in the lives of many local children. The Rotary Club of Wauconda is participating with Lake Zurich Coats at the Chapel in Lake Zurich to distribute winter coats to children in need. Operation Warm, a not-for-profit organization, manufactures brand new coats that are distributed to children in need across the United States.
 
This year, we are participating again by raising funds to pay for coats and volunteering to distribute these coats in October. Please consider supporting the Rotary Club of Wauconda with a donation in any amount. $20 buy one new coat for a child. Through September two anonymous donors are matching your contributions up to a total of $5000 each. You can find our donation page for Operation Warm at Operation Warm Coat. Thank you in advance for your support.
