Newburgh Free Library hosts Operation Warm for Head Start Families


NEW YORK – Oct. 18, 2019

The Newburgh Free Library will be hosting “A Warm Welcome to the Library” on Saturday, Nov. 2, 2019, from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. at 124 Grand Street, Newburgh, NY. In partnership with PRG (Production Resource Group) in association with the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, Local 311, and Operation Warm, this program will distribute new winter coats and books to children enrolled at Newburgh Head Start of Eastern Orange County.

Operation Warm, a national nonprofit, partnered with the Library last year and reached out to continue to support the distribution of coats to youth in the community again this year. The Library approached Head Start to become this year’s recipient agency in hopes of reaching new families who may not be familiar with the resources and programs available for free at their local public library. “This is a wonderful opportunity to provide a new coat and free books to youth in our community along with welcoming families to visit the Library,” said Lisa Kochik, Head of Youth Services.

Volunteers from PRG and IATSE Local 311 will be on hand at the event to assist with distributing the coats that were funded by their members and Operation Warm.
