Warm The Children is a program whose mission is to provide new warm winter clothing for children in need. The mission is led by AnnArbor.com and accomplished through the cooperative effort of AnnArbor.com, the Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation, United Bank & Trust, social service agencies, schools, volunteer shoppers, cooperating retailers and our national partner, Warm The Children, Inc.
Shopping is underway for the 2012/13 season. Help us achieve our goal of raising $250,000 now to serve 3,000 children in the winter of 2013/14!

Would you like to be a volunteer for Warm the Children?
Volunteers are needed for data entry and administrative items and well as to shop with the families referred to Warm the Children. Volunteer shoppers are of vital importance to the Warm The Children program. Our volunteer shopper coordinators match up families with volunteer shoppers who meet the family at the store, manage the administration of the dollars and assist the family with shopping. If you would like to volunteer in any capacity, please fill out the following form and a Warm the Children coordinator will contact you.
Thanks to the generosity of individuals, groups and businesses, $205,127.28 was raised during the 2011 campaign.
During the 2011 Warm the Children season, 3,202 children were referred to the program and 2,824 of those children received new warm winter clothing. Warm the Children was not able to serve 212 of the children because they had either moved out of the area, declined the service due to a change in financial status, or because the contact information they provided was no longer valid.
