Firefighters Give Warmth, Create Smiles
Sixty-three excited students at Broadway Elementary were proud to show off their brand new winter coats on November 6. The school was the first of seven Central Valley elementary schools to be visited by Spokane Valley firefighters. The firefighters have been giving new coats to students, courtesy of “Operation Warm”, a new initiative that raised $6300 to purchase more than 325 new coats for Spokane Valley children in need.
Operation Warm is sponsored by Spokane Valley Firefighters Local 876. Thanks to Firefighter Scott Niebuhr for leading this successful initiative. Operation Warm received financial support from Kaiser Permanente, Banner Bank, Mutual of Enumclaw Insurance, Dishman Dodge Ram Jeep, Spokane Valley Firefighters Benevolent Association, General Fire, the Spokane Indians and SignsTec.
In addition to Broadway Elementary, students attending Adams, Greenacres, McDonald, Opportunity, Progress and University Elementary schools also received warm new coats. Just in time for winter!
