Collecting Winter Coats for the Annual Drive!
Following our community swap, we will continue to Collect Winter Coats as part of an annual Winter Coat Drive. The Coat Drive we are supporting is a city-wide effort run by New York Cares which aims to collect 125,000 coats each year and distribute them to New Yorkers who need them most in the colder months. The Coat Drive has been running for 27 years and counting, having collected and distributed 1.7 million winter coats to-date, thanks to generous New Yorkers.
We will be collecting coats for the drive from November 15 through November 28.
Please reach out to James if you have time to help out. Coats will be collected in the yard.
