K.F.F.A. Operation Warm

Sevierville, Tenn. (WVLT)-- The Knoxville Fire Fighters Association donated dozens of coats to children in foster care in Sevier County Thursday.

 

The firefighters say they wanted to make sure the coats went directly into the hands of the kids and not on a shelf. "It's going to go to all of our foster care children we have 147 in the state of Tennessee and this is going to get to them just in the nick of time," said Dr. Walt Mauldin with the Smoky Mountain Children's Home. "This is a new program that we are kind of testing. It's called operation warm, it is big in the northern states through the International Association of Fire Fighters, said Kevin Faddis, Knoxville Fire Fighters Association.

 

The Knoxville Fire Fighters Association is hoping that they can expand the program in the coming years.

Update for the 2017 year the program Operation Warm has been a great success each year since we started it this year our fire fighters were able to purchase 288 brand new coats and donate them to the Smoky Mountain Children's Home. We only hope that in the coming years the program continues to grow.
