It might seem a bit warm to start collecting winter coats for those in need but Jersey Cares Annual Coat Drive is underway.
Over the past 20 years, Jersey Cares has donated 500,000 new and gently-used winter coats to men, women, and children in need throughout New Jersey. They receive more than 50,000 requests for coats each year, and in 2016 Jersey Cares will once again collect and distribute winter coats through The 21st Annual Jersey Cares Coat Drive.
More than just an article of clothing, your coat can open opportunities for someone who needs one. You can enable a job-seeker to continue his search during the winter, allow a student to focus on her studies in a cold classroom, or help a senior go out for medication in a storm. What to you is a coat hanging in the back of your closet can be a life-changing support for someone in need.
Help keep your neighbors warm by starting your own collection drive today! Visit the website for more information on how you can be a part of the Jersey Cares Coat Drive.
