NEW YORK CARES --Give to the Coat Drive for New Yorkers in need

Each year, New York Cares organizes a Coat Drive to provide New Yorkers in need with warm and gently used winter coats.  This year, they have received requests for more than 100,000 coats, but to date have only collected 30,000.  People are lining up early at the distributions centers in hopes to get a desperately needed coat.  Their coat drive is running until Friday, February 7, 2014 and they need your help to meet this need.

Organize Coat Donations in Your Buildings

Collection sites can be set up in your residential and commercial properties. New York Cares would provide all the promotional materials you need promote the coat drive in your buildings. All you have to do is provide boxes to collect the coats. If you need assistance in getting the coats to our warehouse, email us at New York Cares.  We will make sure your coats get to where they are needed most!

Donate Your Coats

If you have a coat you are willing to donate, you can drop it off at one of 280 drop-off locations throughout all five boroughs, making it easy to donate a coat anywhere in New York City. You zoom in and click a location for details like site name and hours of collection.

Share the need for coats in your regular outreach to tenants

If possible, when sending communications to your tenants, please mention this year’s need for coats, with a link to the New York Cares website:

Thank you for your continued help for this very important and worthy cause.
