Coat Drive

35th Annual Coat Drive

New York Cares is once again harnessing the generosity of our city to keep all New Yorkers warm this winter. And with the help of WE ❤️ NYC, every NYC sports team, and you, we're hoping to make this coat drive our biggest one yet.

This winter, just $25 keeps 10 New Yorkers warm and provides essential programs that help break the cycle of poverty. Every dollar counts.
