After the devastating effects of storm Sandy, New York Cares doubled their coat collection goal for the 2012 coat drive. We appreciate everyone who spared a coat to warm a heart during the holiday season.
As the city's largest volunteer organization, New York Cares brings volunteer programs to 1,200 non-profits, city agencies and public schools citywide. For 25 years, New York Cares has championed a number of social issues including tutoring programs, revitalizing parks and public areas, and serving meals to the hungry. For more information on New York Cares visit www.newyorkcares.org.
Through its holiday programs in 2011, New York Cares kept nearly 77,000 New Yorkers warm, and granted the winter wishes of children and families in need. In 2012, Storage Post's New York locations collected hundreds of coats for New Yorkers in need during New York Cares’ Annual Coat Drive.
In addition to collecting coats at every Storage Post Self Storage New York store, each location also acted as coat drop-off and delivery hub for other groups. Storage Post moving trucks delivered nearly 1,000 coats to the New York Cares warehouse for local group collections, in addition to the stores collected coats.
Coat donations were accepted during the listed office hours of the locations below.
