Meets pressing community needs by mobilizing caring New Yorkers in volunteer service.

New York Cares Coat Drive

The 2019 Coat Drive has come to a close!

Thank you to everyone who donated coats, volunteered at coat sortings and events, and supported our fundraising efforts.

The nearly 95,000 New Yorkers who receive a coat through the Coat Drive make difficult choices about their basic needs every day. Your efforts made sure that figuring out how to get a warm coat wasn’t one of those tough decisions. From individuals and schools to major companies, each act of warmth you sparked helped us keep hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers warm this winter. 

If you still have coats, check out DonateNYC's handy map to find agencies near you that accept coats and other items year-round.
