If you’ve made it through a brutal New York City winter, you know the importance of a good coat, as well as the importance of New York Cares’ annual coat drive. But that activation is just one of the ways that they wrap their arms around the disadvantaged. Since 1987 the organization has been making a difference in the lives of both their volunteers and the individuals and families they impact through education programs, the revitalization of schools, disaster preparedness and response, and other social needs. Next month’s gala will mark their 30th coat drive, and the distribution of their 2 millionth coat! We think those are milestones worth witnessing!
