Keeping kids warm and healthy during the winter season is important. LCCAA partnered with Lorain Metropolitan Housing Authority (LMHA) to help by giving brand new coats to kids living in housing authority. LCCAA's Operation Warm program provides brand new coats to children ages 0 - 18 living in the housing authority.
LMHA also gave away free school supplies and the Lorain County Boys and Girls club donated turkeys to the families. The events took place in Lorain, Elyria, and Oberlin. Special thanks to the Elyria and Lorain Police departments for handing out supplies to the families.
