Meets pressing community needs by mobilizing caring New Yorkers in volunteer service.

Because of the heat advisory for this weekend issued by NYC Emergency Management and the Health Department, select programming that may pose a risk to our volunteers and clients has been cancelled. Projects with partners who provide critical services will take place, but we encourage our volunteers to follow safety tips including drinking plenty of water and staying inside/out of the sun when possible. Please check your email for information on the status of specific projects. Thank you!

Application to Receive Coats

Waitlisted Applications Only

Thank you for your interest in receiving coats as part of the 2018 New York Cares Coat Drive. At this time, we have received requests for more than 130,000 coats and are only accepting waitlisted applications. While we hope to fulfill all requests, we are unable to guarantee that we will be able to provide your agency with coats this year. If coats do become available, waitlisted applications will be fulfilled in the order in which they are received and agencies can expect to be contacted in January.
