About 2,000 Oklahoma City children are receiving new winter coats this year through a national nonprofit called Operation Warm.

Oklahoma City Public Schools officials will distribute the coats to elementary schoolchildren in the coming week.

“Many of the students we serve come from families struggling financially,” Superintendent Karl Springer said. “These coats make a huge difference.”

This winter, Operation Warm expects to hand out 200,000 coats to children in 40 states, according to the organization's website.
