The New York Cares Coat Drive serves an important need every year: providing homeless people with a warm winter coat.
But in Sandy's wake, its mission is even more important. Thousands of New Yorkers displaced by the storm need your help. The demand for gently used winter coats is unprecedented.
So the 24th Annual New York Cares Coat Drive is stepping up its effort and asking all New Yorkers to step it up too. Last year, New York Cares collected 78,000 coats. This year the goal is to collect 200,000 coats.
NBC 4 New York is collecting coats in our office and we want your help too.
You can donate a gently used coat at the NBC Experience Store between now and December 31.
The NBC Experience Store is located at 30 Rockefeller Plaza. The store is open Sunday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday to Wednesday from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., Thursday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. Get more information about New York Cares.
Please give the gift of warmth this holiday season.
