"Operation Handwarmer"

Since 2012

"Operation Handwarmer" was started in 2009 when we discovered a need for helping our troops stay warm in very cold climates and for sending a "little support" their way, because we care.

News Release January 04, 2017

Kicks 99 is kicking off "Operation Handwarmer 2017" with a series of morning drive remote broadcasts from select area Walmart locations featuring "The KICKS Wake-up Krew".  Morning icon Mike Tyler explains how the Walmart connection will make hand-warmer donations easier and more spontaneous:  "Folks who want to help out our troops can drop by at the Walmart that we're broadcasting from that morning, walk in and purchase a pack or two of hand-warmers, and then simply drop off their hand-warmers to us on their way out."  (Details about KICKS 99 remote Walmart broadcasts are listed at www.Kicks99.com and at www.OperationHandwarmerUS.com).

Burt Sappenfield, a civic-minded CSRA HOME CONNECTIONS Premier Provider and Ambassador who created "Operation Handwarmer" back in 2012, has already laid the groundwork for this drive to collect hand warmers for our front-line troops.
