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
