New York Cares

New York Cares volunteers painting a mural

New York Cares provides volunteer support to more than 1,300 nonprofit agencies, public schools, and other organizations throughout NYC. New York Cares works with each organization to identify their needs, creates projects where volunteers can make a meaningful difference, and then recruits and deploys teams of volunteers to help meet those needs. New York Cares runs the City’s largest coat drive each November through February, collecting gently used winter coats from New Yorkers and distributing them to children, women, and men at homeless shelters, community organizations, and agencies serving seniors.

donateNYC Partner Fact: New York Cares collected and distributed more than 104,000 coats in 2017.
