We all know what it’s like to be cold. Now, imagine having that feeling all winter long. New York Cares runs its annual Coat Drive because it wants to ensure every New Yorker has the opportunity to stay warm, healthy, and safe over the winter, but we can’t do it without you. Start your own collection drive today, or, if you don’t have a coat to donate, text COAT to 41444. Just $20 buys a new coat for a neighbor in need.
The 28th Annual Coat Drive is underway now and individuals and teams can register to participate here: https://www.newyorkcares.org/coat-drive
This year, New York Cares is hoping to collect and distribute 125,000 coats, which represents a record number of requests from its nonprofit and school partners, but is estimated to be only a fraction of the total need for coats that exists throughout the city.
