New York City Rescue Mission
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.
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.
