Eating Bruster's Real Ice Cream can help warm youngsters in the Columbus area this winter.
Between now and Aug. 31, every time you buy a $15 gift card at any Bruster's location or from a member of Kiwanis Club of Columbus, you'll receive a coupon for a free single scoop waffle cone. All of the money goes to Operation Warm.
The other way to contribute is to go to the Knology main office, 6050 Knology Way, and buy a bundled package of cable, telephone and internet services. Knology will donate $15 to Operation Warm on your behalf.
The goal of Operation Warm is to buy 400 winter coats for children in need. The coats will be distributed through the Sara Spano Clothing Bank. Spano was the food editor of the Ledger-Enquirer and an educator.
Operation Warm is a national initiative that distributes thousands of winter coats each year.
The coats will be available at the Spano Clothing Bank in October.
