The New York Cares Coat Drive is more important than ever in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. NYCares is aiming to collect a record 200,000 coats this year, and they need 50,000 coats immediately to distribute to New Yorkers in Staten Island, the Rockaways and other hard-hit areas.
Fact: In a normal year, 90% of homeless adults need a new, warm coat each winter because they have no place to keep one over the summer months. But this year, it’s not just homeless people who need our help; thousands of New Yorkers have been displaced and left out in the cold or in shelters as a result of the storm, creating unprecedented demand for warm coats.
Fact: Last year, with your help, New York Cares collected 78,000 coats. To meet the urgent need this year, New York Cares needs to collect 200,000 coats before the end of the year. That’s a lot more and New Yorkers are depending on every one of them.
The coats collected during The New York Cares Coat Drive are sorted at the NYCares warehouse and then immediately distributed to disadvantaged men, women and children at schools, homeless shelters, and community organizations throughout the city. By mid-January, all of the coats collected will be warming New Yorkers in need.
Receipts will be provided for all coat donations. The value of any coat you donate is tax deductible.
If you are interested in donating, please email TheInnerU23@gmail.com now through December 31st - You can also drop coats off at public collection sites. Click here for a list and donate a coat today!

Here’s an update on the upcoming news conference to highlight the crippling effect employment credit checks can have on college students and recent grads…
Believe it or not, according to a recent study, half of all graduates over the last five years are unemployed or underemployed. So between the anemic job market and the rising cost of higher education, more and more students and recent grads are struggling to pay off their student loan debt. And we have a lot of debt. Nationally, it adds up to over a trillion dollars. That’s more than our total credit card debt! Put it all together and you end up with what I like to call the student debt triple threat: a college education is more expensive than ever, students are mortgaging their futures to pay for it, and if they fall behind, they may not even be able to get a job thanks to the credit agencies.
That’s why the New York Public Interest Research Group is holding an event at BMCC (199 Chambers Street New York, NY 10007) on October 16th at 11:30am to speak out on behalf of students everywhere. So far, Council Members Brad Lander and Ydanis Rodriguez, a student who has been affected by this practice, and a member of the BMCC student government are scheduled to speak. As you can imagine, there’s still a whole lot to be done and they’d like to enlist your help!
Here are things you can do to ensure that the event is a resounding success:
- Invite people on Facebook. Here is a link to the event page: http://www.facebook.com/events/414466858608690/ In order to send invitations must first “Join” the event.
- Help make signs! All day this Thursday (Oct. 11), NYPIRG has a storefront reserved at the Parsons School of Design’s Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Gallery (66 Fifth Avenue at 13th Street) in Manhattan. It’s part of a project called PDA, or Public Display of Action. The idea is that they can make signs for the event and passersby will be able to see them and see the signs as we make them, which in itself will be an advertisement for the campaign. Go join! They’ll be there from 9am to 5pm.
- Help reach out to the media! Do you have good contacts with reporters who may want to cover the event? Please let the New York Public Interest Research Group know! Contact: 9 Murray Street
New York (212) 349-6461; OR Andy Morrison, NYPIRG firstname.lastname@example.org
- Attend the news conference next Tuesday, October 16th!
