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

Sort Coats at the New York Cares Warehouse


Sort Coats at the New York Cares Warehouse

You've heard all about it! Now take part in the 31st Annual New York Cares Coat Drive by sorting donated coats. Coats will be received by thousands of New Yorkers who need a warm winter coat. This project is a great fit for volunteers who can think quickly on their feet.

Volunteers should come prepared to stand for the duration of the project. Wear sturdy, close-toed shoes and clothes you don't mind getting dirty.

You must bring a photo ID for security and water for yourself.

New Volunteer Friendly


Since 1987, New York Cares has been our city's premier volunteering organization. We create opportunities for tens of thousands of busy New Yorkers to give their time each year through fulfilling, flexibly-scheduled volunteer projects. New York Cares responds to our city's most acute needs by reaching out to social service agencies, schools, homeless shelters, and other deserving organizations, and mobilizing teams of volunteers to help with their work. Volunteers tutor children, feed the hungry, assist people living with HIV/AIDS, revitalize community gardens, and much more.
