Burnsville Firefighters Union Provides New Coats to Local Children
Coat Donation Collage 1In early November, more than 360 children at Sky Oaks Elementary received brand-new winter coats courtesy of Burnsville Professional Firefighters Local 2910. For the first year, Burnsville Professional Firefighters have partnered with Operation Warm, a national non-profit group dedicated to providing hope, happiness and warmth for children in need through the gift of new winter coats.

In addition to Burnsville, the collaborative venture of Twin Cities Firefighters for Operation Warm includes International Association of Firefighter (IAFF) Locals in Minneapolis, St. Paul, Roseville and Richfield. The group has supplied thousands of new coats to schools throughout the metro and beyond for several years.

The Burnsville Professional Firefighters along with employees from ApplianceSmart -- this year's project sponsor -- went to Sky Oaks Elementary to personally fit each child with a new coat, and help them to write their name in the interior tag which reads, “Made Just for You.”

“This is a humbling experience,” said Jamie Glover, Burnsville Firefighter, Local 2910. “Before the Burnsville Professional Firefighters joined with Twin Cities Firefighters for Operation Warm, I never realized the need for this program in our community. I am also humbled by the number of corporations that have donated money to ensure children receive a gift of warmth for the Minnesota winters.”
