Harrison County Elks donate to the Clarksburg Fire Department’s ‘Operation Warm’

Harrison

With the cold temperatures, the Clarksburg Fire Department knows how important a winter coat can be. 

For several years, the Clarksburg Fire Department has been raising money for “Operation Warm.” The initiative helps to give coats to children who need them. 

Thursday afternoon the Harrison County Elks provided the department with a $1,000 check to purchase more coats. 

“Well we already surpassed the amount we did last year by about 75, so we have helped a lot of children already. We are in touch with other schools still and we might be able to do some this year and are still working,” said Mark Walsh, president of the Clarksburg Fire Department Union. 

About 225 coats have been given out to students at Adamston, Northview, Nutter Fort, Norwood and Wilsonburg.
