The Rotary Club of Charleston continued its annual Operation Warm program, which delivers critical winter wear to local students. This year things look different in this Covid environment, but we are happy to report children at Mitchell Math and Science Elementary School still received coats and socks through the project. In past years, volunteers have gone to 2-3 elementary schools and distributed coats to children in need. Due to Covid, we weren’t allowed to physically go and give out coats as no one is allowed in at Mitchell besides school district employees. Rotarians Kelsey Willey and Stefany Di Manno Ceccato, who lead the Operation Warm team, ordered the coats to be shipped directly to the school. Socks were shopped for and dropped off with Alison Johnson, Guidance Counselor at Mitchell. Coats and socks were given to 120 children in CD Kids, Kindergarten, First, Second, Third, Fourth and Fifth Grades. The children were thrilled to receive them. Perfect timing too as it is starting to get cold out!
