Clarksburg Firefighters Local Union IAFF #89 “wrap up” their Operation Warm coat drive Friday morning at Adamston Elementary School.   

105 winter coats were distributed to students in need Friday morning. Earlier in the week, the firefighters handed out over 60 brand new coats to children at North View Elementary School.  New this year, thanks to the support of the community, firefighters were also able to distribute toboggans and gloves. 

This is the fifth year Clarksburg Fire Fighters Local 89 has partnered with Operation Warm. Each year they have been able to expand and help more families and children to not only stay warm but to make sure they have something new they can be proud of. 

Mark Walsh of the Clarksburg Fire Department and President of IAFF Local #89 stated, “We really appreciate the continued support from our community, other organizations, and individuals who donate money year after year. Thankfully they also see the value of this program and continue their support.”  Firefighter Walsh continued, “It’s something our union has really taken pride in. Our members look forward to being able to go to the schools and know we are making a difference for the school and the students.”

In addition to being able to give the gift of warmth to these children right before the winter holidays, the day also provides the opportunity for the children to interact with the firefighter as special role models.

A second order of coats will be given to children at Norwood, Wilsonburg and Salem.
