    Operation Bundle Up Success!

    On November 6, 2015, United Way of Johnson County hosted another successful Operations Bundle Up. 170 families received coats, hats and mittens to keep them warm for the winter. 416 children received 773 coats and 166 adults received coats. Milto Cleaners generously cleaned every donation to ensure each child received a clean coat. Turning Point Church graciously allowed us to use their facility to store and distribute the coats. Special thanks to all those who donated coats, hats and mitten. Also, the event only happens because of our awesome volunteers and sponsors. You are all awesome!

    If you were unable to attend the event, and your child(ren) are still in need of a winter coat, the following locations received the coats that were not handed out at Operation Bundle Up. We suggest contacting each organization prior to visiting the location.
