York Cares 27th Annual Coat Drive –
Various locations; collection kicks off Tuesday, November 15
and continues through the New Year
Another great opportunity for young children, who might ask
why the Statue of Liberty is seen huddled and shivering in
the snow on ads at this time of year.
Explain it's for New York Cares' annual coat drive so
homeless and low-income families can have something warm to
wear. Donate gently used coats of all sizes or even start
your own drive in your building or school. Collection sites
are located around the city in transportation hubs, police
stations, and participating stores. Check the New
York Cares website for a complete list of drop-off locations.
