FIT is working in conjunction with the nonprofit New York Cares on its annual Coat Drive. The organization’s citywide effort aims to collect 100,000 coats each year and distribute them to New Yorkers who need them most in the colder months. The Coat Drive has been running for 30 years and expects to distribute its 2 millionth coat this winter.
Boxes are currently placed in select building lobbies where members of the community can drop off donations. FIT will be collecting coats November 21 through December 21. All coats should be in new or lightly used condition; all sizes are accepted.
