Join the New York Cares Coat Drive

New York Cares Donate Coats Coat Drive Logo

The 2016 Coat Drive has come to a close. We thank each and every New Yorker who donated in support of our neighbors in need. We are still tallying coat numbers, but we know, directly due to your compassion and generosity, that tens of thousands of New Yorkers will be warmer, healthier, and safer over the remaining winter months.

We are no longer accepting coats for the 2016 Coat Drive. Please keep them ready for the 2017 drive, which will kick off in November.
