Operation Handwarmer was founded by Augusta resident Burt Sappenfield, in connection with Century 21 Larry Miller Realty in Augusta. The operation collects handwarmers and other items for front-line troops. The donations go to the 1st Battalion 75th Rangers, the 160th Soar "Night Stalkers", the 3rd ID, and other military personal.

A blitz drive will be held for one day only at the Evans Walmart (4469 Washington Road, Evans) on Dec. 4 from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. Walmart will put as many of the items on the donation wish list at the front of their store so that they will all be available in one place as customers enter. This will make it convenient for shoppers to buy the donations and immediately drop them off in the bins. 

 

The official launch will be celebrated at the CSRA HOME CONNECTIONS Networking Breakfast on November 13th at The Snelling Center in Augusta. The final day for donations will be Dec. 6.
