Rotary of Waukegan's Operation Warm  distributed coats to Waukegan District #60 elementary schools

Last week Ted Poulos chaired the club’s annual Operation Warm and when all the boxes were opened and coats distributed, 221 brand new jackets were distributed at 11 Waukegan District #60 elementary schools. Over 160 Rotary Clubs in more than 50 districts partner with Operation Warm to conduct service projects that provide coats to children in their communities.

"One of the girls said ‘I get to keep this? For real?’ She thought she was only allowed to borrow it for recess every day," said Ellen Griffith, School Social Worker at Oakdale Elementary. Ted sends a big Thank You to all those who helped out this year.
