Noah's 4th Annual Holiday Coat Drive
Noah is proud to present our 4th Annual Holiday Coat Drive. This year, we are partnering with New York Cares.
New York Cares is a well-run nonprofit that in addition to meeting pressing community needs by developing service programs and mobilizing 52,000 New Yorkers in volunteer service each year, has also developed a highly coordinated, city-wide program to effectively match those in need with coats that fit. The annual statistics are impressive:
- Over 1100 corporate and civic groups start drives among their families, friends, colleagues and customers
- New York Cares arranges roughly 300 coat drop-off locations throughout New York's five boroughs, as well as across Long Island and upstate
- Hundreds of volunteers sort the coats at New York Care's warehouse, a process that takes nearly 2,000 hours of work. The coats are then distributed through a network of nonprofit social service agencies, public schools, religious organizations, and transitional housing shelters
As anyone who's experienced a NYC winter knows, life becomes nearly impossible without a decent coat. New York Care's effectiveness at reaching vulnerable populations across the city means they've provided over 2 million coats to people who need them over the last 31 years of the drive.
Noah is proud to be a participating drop-off location this year. From December 4th through January 30th, drop off any new or gently used coat at our flagship store at 195 Mulberry Street in Soho and receive a 20% discount for a single in-store purchase. You will also receive our annual commemorative Coat Drive patch.
For those who can't make it to our store in person, we are also accepting mailed-in donations. Please mail your new or gently used coat to:
Noah Coat Drive
195 Mulberry Street
New York, NY 10012
Once you ship your donated coat to us, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading COAT DRIVE. Include your name, a tracking number for the shipment, and a mailing address where we can send this year's Coat Drive patch. After receiving your donated coat by mail, we will send out a 20% discount code unique to your email address that can be used for a single order from our online store. The code will be valid for three months from the date it is issued.
New York Cares estimates the cost of getting one coat to someone in need is $20. To donate further to the drive, please click here: https://coatdrive2019.funraise.org
