Kars 4 Kids, along with Staten Island Rep. Michael Grimm, City Councilmember Debi Rose and local charities joined forces to help hand out 1,000 winter coats to those who lost everything in superstorm Sandy.
A Christmas Day party and gift exchange went off as planned in the basement of the Church of St. Luke and St. Matthew in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn just two days after a fire broke out inside the Episcopal church.
Volunteers of all ages packed the New York City Rescue Mission for New York Cares. The organization is committed to keeping New Yorkers warm this holiday season.
New York Cares said the goal is to collect 50,000 coats before Thanksgiving so they can be distributed to storm victims as quickly as possible.
The coat drive was run by New York Cares. Executive Director Gary Bagley said this isn’t just for the homeless but also the working poor.
New York Cares is hosting its 22nd annual coat drive run at the New York City Rescue Mission where the spirit of Christmas is being felt by those in need of getting warm, winter coats.
In years past, the Bergen Community College Rotary Club’s “Coins For Coats” drive has collected used coats, but caution over the creepy-crawly critters has stopped them from doing that this year.
