What if you couldn’t get to work, pick up your prescriptions from the pharmacy, or send your child to school this winter? All because you didn’t have a decent coat to wear. This is the reality for many New Yorkers right now.
For the last 31 years, New York Cares has channeled the generosity of our city into our annual Coat Drive. Last year we distributed our two millionth coat, and this year our goal is to collect 100,000 new or gently used coats for social service agencies, public schools, transitional housing shelters, and more.
Gift of warmth this season by supporting the Coat Drive in one of the following ways.

Now is the time to mobilize your friends, family, and coworkers to start your own coat collection. All it takes is a poster and a box prominently placed at your office, church, or apartment building to help make sure someone’s winter is a little bit warmer. Register today!
