Friends of Greenwood Playground supports the New York Cares Coat Drive. Bring new and gently-used coats for adults and children. New York Cares says
The Coat Drive is a city-wide effort run by New York Cares which aims to collect 125,000 coats each year and distribute them to New Yorkers who need them most in the colder months.
The Coat Drive has been running for 27 years and counting, having collected and distributed 1.7 million winter coats to-date, thanks to generous New Yorkers.
