BALTIMORE (WJZ) — As the temperatures get cooler, volunteers are helping hundreds of Baltimore children stay warm.

It’s part of an organization called Operation Warm.

Horizon Services paid for the coats, which are made by disabled workers in the U.S. That helps provide a steady income to American workers, and it has already helped more than 2 million children.

“We’re giving out some jackets to these kids, and sharing a little bit of love,” says Aaron Mallet, of Horizon Services.

“It’s hard for us to understand how kids come to school without coats,” says Mark Aitken, also of Horizon. “But they do, and to have these kids come in here and pick out a coat, the color they like, a size that fits and to watch them walk out of here with a smile on their faces, is absolutely unbelievable.”

Third-grader Michael says “it’s a good day.”

“I think my favorite color is red, but this is closest to red,” he said while looking at the coat he chose.

Horizon partnered with Morrell Park Elementary and with National Firefighter’s non-profit, Operation Warm, to distribute coats to those most in need.

Thanks to their generosity, these little ones will be a lot cozier.

“This is beautiful, this is really great, and the kids are loving it and they’re smiling and they are happy it’s like Thanksgiving today,” said Rebecca Duncan, of the Baltimore City Police Department.
