Attention New Yorkers! December is the month to donate coats to the New York Cares Coat Drive. As the pre-winter’s cold has already made it mark on the tri-state, you’ve most likely visited your coat closet for something warm to wear. This year more than ever, as New York City recovers from the unprecedented effects of Hurricane Sandy, winter coats are desperately needed. In addition to the 90% of homeless adults who need winter coats every year, there are thousands of displaced New Yorkers without homes and living in shelters due to the storm. The New York Cares Coat Drive is aiming to gather 200,000 coats this winter, their largest goal yet. As it is the season of giving, please take another look through your closet and see if you have any lightly worn coats to donate to this important cause and help a neighbor in need stay warm this winter. Below is a list of collection sites through the city.
