Propane company Ferrellgas Partners, L.P. is partnering with Operation Warm, a national nonprofit organization that offers warmth, confidence and hope to underserved children through the gift of winter coats.
“At Ferrellgas, we strive to make propane easy for our customers,” Ferrellgas CEO Tamria Zertuche said. “But life isn’t always easy, especially on a cold winter day. That’s why Ferrellgas is proud to work with Operation Warm to donate these much-needed items in communities Ferrellgas serves. We’re excited to see what we can accomplish together.”
Founded in 1998, Operation Warm has served more than 4 million children across the U.S. and Canada. With the launch of Warm Soles in 2021, the organization now provides high-quality athletic shoes to children in need as well.
“We are proud to partner with Ferrellgas to help them support their communities,” Operation Warm Executive Director Grace Sica said. “They truly understand the value of warmth and how it factors into the overall well-being of children and families.”
Zertuche said Ferrellgas aligns itself with Operation Warm’s tagline ‘more than a coat,’ which means the coats provide more than physical warmth, but also emotional warmth, the confidence to socialize and succeed and hope for a brighter future.
