Woman at New York Cares Coat Drive Holding Up Donated Coat

Since the Coat Drive began 29 years ago, we have collected and distributed 1.8 million winter coats to New Yorkers in need. The drive has also become a holiday philanthropic tradition for many residents, with coworkers bringing coats to their annual office Christmas party or neighbors placing collection boxes in the lobby of their building. 

While the New York Cares Annual Coat Drive runs from November through January, the following accept clothing donations year round.
