Would you like to help someone less fortunate keep warm this winter?
Did you know that 90% of homeless adults need a new,warm coat each winter because they have no place to keep one over the summer months? But it's not just homeless people who need our help. Thousands of New Yorkers are forced to make a choice between buying a winter coat and putting food on the table, or meeting other basic survival needs. For those of you in Yonkers or nearby, if you have coats or jackets (foradults and/or children) you don't need anymore, just call or e-mail me. I'll pick up your unwanted outerwear any time before December 13th and deliver them to the New York Cares Coat Drive. Thanks for helping during the holidays!
