Operation Bundle Up 2021

Operation Bundle Up has been serving families in Johnson County for over 15 years by providing winter coats, hats, scarves and gloves each year. Prior to the pandemic, new and gently used coats would be collected throughout the county, with many schools, churches and businesses serving as collection sites, and with used coats being cleaned for no charge by Milto’s Dry Cleaners. With the safety precautions and restrictions that came with the pandemic, coat collections have not been possible the past two years. In 2021, Metro Ministries was pleased to support this community initiative by awarding a discretionary grant towards the purchase of new coats. Over 400 Johnson County children were able to purchase new coats in 2021!
