A Letter to New Yorkers

Dear New Yorkers,

For the last two years, the Democrat-controlled State government has launched a merciless assault on the quality of life of our State residents.

Under their leadership, the Democrats took more of your hard earned money through higher taxes while at the same time killing over 245,000 jobs in 2009 alone.

They eliminated our STAR rebate checks, which were given to every homeowner to feed the super-sized state budgets that increased spending by over 14 billion in two years. Additionally, their infamous MTA bailout saddled every church, charity, school and small business with a job-killing payroll tax while leaving upstate bridges and roads to crumble.

COAT DRIVE AT THE 122 PRECINCT - Help Someone Who Needs a Warm Coat this Winter

 

90% of homeless adults need a new, warm coat each winter because they have no place to keep one over the summer months. But it's not just homeless people who need our help; thousands of New Yorkers each year are forced to make a choice between buying a winter coat and putting food on the table, or meeting other basic survival needs.

New York Cares collects nearly 70,000 gently used, freshly laundered winter coats each December and distributes them to thousands of men, women, and children who would otherwise be cold.

Please help and bring a gently used coat to the Holiday Treat Open House at the 122 Precinct on December 17 from 6am-9pm
