How we started...
Operation Warm Hearts began back in December of 2014 by Emily Gochenaur. She was a small-but-mighty team of 1 with big dreams and a 20-year plan for success.
Soon enough, family and friends began learning how to knit and donating supplies after being inspired by Emily's drive and dedication.
In 2015, Operation Warm Hearts held their first Knit-a-Thon to bring the message to the community and we began to "Spread the Warmth." We made our first donation of just over 40 knitted items.
