It’s that time of the year again as New York Cares begin collecting coats as we approach the winter season. The 28th Annual coat drive kicks off on Tuesday, November 15. Donating to the New York Cares coat drive is now as easy as picking up your phone and texting “COAT” to 41444. A link will be sent out where you can give $20 that will be used to buy a coat for a New Yorker in need. New York Cares is also collecting coats the old-fashioned way again this year. For more information on how to help keep someone warm this winter, go online at New York Cares.
