Each year, nearly 65,000 volunteers participate in programs to meet immediate needs, revitalize public spaces, and provide educational support to their fellow New Yorkers.

This winter, New York Cares will once again harness the generosity of our city to keep our most vulnerable of residents warm through the Annual Coat Drive and proudly deliver our 2 millionth coat. For the last 30 years, we've enabled thousands of New Yorkers to perform acts of warmth – small seemingly insignificant gestures which have an enormous impact. The 30th Annual New York Cares Coat Drive kicks off on Tuesday, November 13.

The Coat Drive Warehouse team is a crucial part of making the Coat Drive happen. Last year, with the support of many generous New Yorkers, New York Cares distributed over 104,000 coats to nearly 500 nonprofit agencies in New York City, who in turn distributed them to their clients. Our 2018 goal is to distribute 130,000 coats. As part of a seasonal unit Coat Drive Associates receive, track, sort, and distribute coats onsite at the Coat Drive Warehouse in mid-town. The position requires strong organization, problem-solving, and customer service skills, as well as the ability to self-motivate and initiate. If spreading acts of warmth and meeting immediate needs is your gig, this is the position for you.

Please note: this is a seasonal position from November 2018 – February 2019
