New York Cares Coat Drive

2018 Coat Drive Update

All coat collections are officially closed. Learn more about the results of this year's drive and the key players behind our Acts of Warmth campaign. 

Thank you to everyone who donated and helped carry on the tradition of neighbor helping neighbor through the toughest months of the year. 

30th Annual Coat Drive

This winter, New York Cares will once again harness the generosity of our city to keep our most vulnerable 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 simple good deeds that in fact, yield a massive impact. 

Still have coats?

Though the 2018 Coat Drive has officially closed, if you still have warm clothing donations to give, these agencies may be able to accept your donations.
