Where do the coats go?

New York Cares works hand-in-hand with nonprofit social service agencies, churches, schools, and shelters in New York City to make sure coats are distributed as quickly as they are collected. Our partners serve some of our city's most in-need populations. Read one partner's story below.

The 25th Annual New York Cares Coat Drive has come to an end this year. If you have donations that didn’t make it to our warehouse this year please bring them to one of the agencies included via the link below. Thank you for all your support and we will see you next fall.

This year, we partnered with the NY/NJ Super Bowl Host Committee and Jersey Cares in creating the Super Community Coat Drive to showcase the region’s goodwill and generosity as Super Bowl XLVIII came to town in February. For more information, click here.

Community Partner Profile: Part of the Solution

Part of the Solution (POTS) is a multi-service agency supporting Bronx residents in a variety of ways, including providing meals, clothing, and legal aid among many others. They have been participating in the New York Cares Coat Drive for many years, and when asked about the affect of donated coats for their clients, Volunteer and Development Coordinator Kimberly Roginski said “Ensuring that someone in need receives a warm coat for the winter means far more than simply the coat – it affirms that they are valued, that they matter, and that people care.”

 

Your coat donations directly support POTS, and hundreds of other Community Partners just like them.
