New York Cares Coat Drive

This event has already taken place.Dec. 21, 2022 – 31, all day,

Hey New Yorkers! We know you’re so much more than fuhgedabout it tough and live in the greatest city in the world. You’re the beating heart of the city, so we’re coming to you with an urgent message: too many of our neighbors are going without a warm coat this season. In reality, a total of 1.4 million New Yorkers, including one in five children, are currently living in poverty.

Our annual Coat Drive is in full swing, and the best way to make a difference is to donate $25, to give a New Yorker a brand new coat + 10 nutritious meals. You can also donate a coat, proving that last season’s coat still has a lot of warmth left.

Last year, our Coat Drive distributed more than 63,000 coats and 260,000 meals to New Yorkers in need. When you donate to Coats+, your dollar goes further, and ensures that brand new warm coats and meals reach the communities that need them most. We’re on a mission to provide another 60,000 coats this season. Will you help us warm up New York, inside and out?
