November 17, 2022 – Employees from Stifel St. Louis, in partnership with Operation Warm, delivered new coats to the student bodies of Kreitner and Caseyville Elementary Schools on November 15 and 17, 2022.
Stifel has partnered with Operation Warm since 2018 to provide brand new coats to children in need. Operation Warm, a national nonprofit that manufactures their own coats, is funded by corporate, community and government partnerships; in addition to donations from grants, foundations, groups and individuals.
Kevin Ortmeyer, Stifel’s Managing Director, said, “Stifel associates giving warm new coats to the children of the Collinsville School District sends a message to these deserving children that we care about them and want to make sure they have a proper winter coat for school and play. The Operation Warm Coat Drive is one of the most fun things we get to do all year.”
More than 650 coats were distributed to the Kreitner and Caseyville students. Teachers and principals collected sizes in advance. During their visit to the schools, Stifel employees met and fit the students with coats. Kreitner and Caseyville, both Title I schools, were chosen for the program based on their percentage of low income students.
Kreitner Elementary School and Caseyville Elementary School include students from Pre-Kindergarten through fourth grade.
