Donate Coats for Hurricane Sandy Relief

The annual New York Cares coat drive is more critical than ever due to the devastating effects
of Hurricane Sandy. This year, they set a goal to collect a record 200,000
coats, and they need 50,000 coats immediately to distribute to New Yorkers in
Staten Island, the Rockaways, and other hard-hit areas.

You can drop off coats at the New York Cares Warehouse, New York City Police Precincts, New York
City Public Libraries, and Citi Pond at Bryant Park.
Go the extra mile and sign up to host a coat drive in your office, apartment building
lobby, church, or school. New York Cares will provide you with all the
materials you need to publicize the drive. All you have to do is arrange to
deliver the coats to their warehouse in midtown Manhattan.
You’re not only clearing some clutter this holiday season,
you’ll be doing something good for so many.
