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.
Start a Coat Collection
Now is the time to mobilize your friends, family, and coworkers to start your own coat collection. All it takes is a poster and a box prominently placed at your office, church, or apartment building to help make sure someone's winter is a little bit warmer. Register today!
If you're unable to donate a coat or start a collection of your own, there is a simple way to help keep your neighbors warm this year. Take out your phone and text COAT to 41444 or click below. Just $20 buys a brand new winter coat for a New Yorker in need.
