A message of warmth
As we enter a season of warmth, holiday lights, and festive celebrations, how many of us have faced a New York winter without a warm coat?
That's the reality for many New Yorkers in our city, especially those experiencing homelessness or financial insecurity.
But it doesn't have to be that way.
For the last 31 years, we have 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 our Community Partners, which include social service agencies, public schools, and transitional housing shelters.
Whether you're new to Coat Drive or you've been collecting for years, we hope you'll help us spread the warmth this winter!
