New York Cares

New York Cares volunteers painting a mural

New York Cares is the largest volunteer network in the city. Last year, more than 64,000 New Yorkers made the city a better place by volunteering in New York Cares programs at nearly 1,300 nonprofits and schools – improving education, meeting immediate needs, and revitalizing public spaces. Each winter, New York Cares runs the City’s largest coat drive, collecting gently used winter coats from New Yorkers and distributing them to children, women, and men at homeless shelters, community organizations, and nonprofit agencies.

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