Operation Warm is Underway in Billings. Here’s Where to Donate

It’s not “if”, but “when” those freezing cold winter temperatures will hit Montana. Most of us will simply turn up the thermostat indoors, or add another layer under a warm winter coat when we head outside. But for Montanans who are struggling financially, keeping warm can be difficult. Kids outgrow their coats and jackets so fast and some parents are faced with the choice of putting food on the table or buying new coats.
