Thomas’ Bagels will celebrate National Bagel Day on Jan. 15 with a $100,000 Donation to Operation Warm. The brand is partnering for a third consecutive year with Operation Warm – a national nonprofit whose mission is to provide warmth, confidence and hope through basic need programs that connect underserved children to community resources they need to thrive. The donation has made possible 4,000 brand-new winter coats for students at five deserving elementary schools within Boston, Dallas, Los Angeles, Portland and Seattle.
Throughout January, elementary schools in each of the five cities will receive nearly 800 brand-new coats to help their students stay warm and ‘toast’-y this winter. Since joining forces with Operation Warm in 2020, Thomas’ has donated to 20 elementary schools across the country with employees volunteering at 15 on-site events. The donations have resulted in more than 18,000 new winter coats for children in need.
In addition to its ongoing partnership with Operation Warm, Thomas’ will also release two ultra- limited-edition designs in honor of National Bagel Day. Beginning Jan. 13, dough-voted fans can head to Thomas’ Instagram account to enter for a chance to win some bagel swag. From a set to match with your own little Mini Bagel to the ultimate pronunciation guide for bagel connoisseurs, a hyper-limited quantity will be up for grabs through a fan giveaway.
“For the Thomas’ brand, one of the best parts of kicking-off the New Year is always another opportunity to celebrate National Bagel Day with our trusted partner, Operation Warm, to provide warmth to those who need it most,” said Eduardo Zarate, Senior Director of Marketing for Thomas’. “As we approach the tremendous milestone of 20,000 children impacted through our partnership, we’re grateful to have found a partner whose mission so closely aligns with our own to help families ‘Wake Up to What’s Possible’ and spread warmth however we can.”
