New Albany, OH, 2016-Nov-29 — /EPR Retail News/ — Hollister Co., a division of Abercrombie & Fitch Co. (NYSE: ANF), launched its annual “Buy a Coat, Give a Coat” campaign in partnership with non-profit organization, Operation Warm. For each winter coat sold in Hollister stores across the United States and online from Tuesday, November 29 through Tuesday, December 13, a new Operation Warm coat will be donated to a child in need, up to 10,000 coats. In addition, starting today (November 29, 2016) through Friday, December 2, Hollister will donate $1 to Operation Warm for each use of the Hollister + Operation Warm Snapchat Geofilter, up to $10,000.

“As a company, we support health and wellness programs that enrich the lives of children and teens and we are grateful that our strong partnership with Operation Warm allows us to do this in such a meaningful way,” said Kristin Scott, Brand President of Hollister Co. “We are excited for the continuation of this program and we are looking forward to providing new, warm coats for children across the country this holiday season.”

The Operation Warm coats will be distributed to communities across the nation, as well as an elementary school near the company’s headquarters in Columbus, Ohio.

“Last year, we partnered with Hollister for the first time and were simply blown away by their overwhelming support to help children in need,” said Dick Sanford, Chairman & Founder of Operation Warm. “We are beyond excited to continue our partnership and discover new ways to help even more children across the country experience a gift of happiness and warmth through a new winter coat.”
