Operation Warm Wings 2011
The Tennessee Museum of Aviation is gearing up for the annual "new coats for kids" charitable program, designated Operation Warm Wings. With Thanksgiving and Christmas just around the corner, this time of year brings to mind, the warmth of living in an area rich in family values, and the thoughts of giving to those less fortunate.
The goal of Operation Warm Wings is to furnish new winter coats for the 200+ children enrolled in the Sevier County Head Start Program. These Pre-K children are living at or below the federal poverty level. A new coat could help bring a little self-esteem to a small child, and therefore provide a sense of worth and confidence in their own merit.
If you would like to help by providing a new winter coat for a child or make a cash donation to this program, please contact the museum at 908-0171, ext 27. A museum volunteer or staff member will be pleased to provide a list of needed coat sizes. Our goal is to distribute the coats by November 18, 2011.
This charitable program would not be possible without the overwhelming support of the community. We want to encourage everyone involved in the past to make an effort to help again, as we try to fulfill the needs of children in the Sevier County community. This program is depending on your compassionate donation to help change their lives. Please help give them the opportunity for a warmer and brighter future.
Operation Warm Wings, along with the many other charitable programs, is an important cause in the Sevier County community. Please take a moment to consider our request.
For more information please contact: Lana Johnson -- 908-0171 ext 27
The Tennessee Museum of Aviation has designated a separate bank account for Operation Warm Wings donations. Funds donated for this program are used only for purchasing new winter coats.
This year, with the generosity of so many people, the Operation Warm Wings program was able to supply 80 coats to four classes in the Sevier County Head Start Program.
Your help and kindness is very much appreciated.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
