More New York Cares: 

This year is an extra special year for the New York Cares Coat Drive. Not only is it the 25th anniversary of the Coat Drive, but it is also the “Super Community Coat Drive,” where we are partnering with the NY/NJ Super Bowl Host Committee and our sister organization, Jersey Cares, to showcase the entire region’s generosity and goodwill in preparation for Super Bowl XLVIII, which comes to the area in February.


Over the past 25 years, the Coat Drive has become a cherished holiday tradition in New York City and it has really been about neighbors helping neighbors. In fact, New Yorkers have donated more than 1.6 million coats over those years, including a record 123,000 last year in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. We’ve then distributed these coats across all five boroughs, getting them in the hands of those who need them most.
