Since the Coat Drive began 30 years ago, New York Cares has collected and distributed 2 million warm winter coats to New Yorkers in need. The drive has also become a holiday philanthropic tradition for many residents, with co-workers 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, many organizations accept clothing donations year round. Click below for our complete list:
