The New York Jets in conjunction with New York Cares will hold its annual Coat Drive on December 19 at The Meadowlands. Fans are encouraged to bring new or gently used coats to the game which will be collected at all gates upon entering the stadium.<p>
The Coat Drive is an annual lifeline for New York's neediest citizens during the cold winter months. This year's goal is to collect over 70,000 coats. Coats collected will be distributed to struggling men, women, and children at New York City homeless shelters, community organizations, churches, and agencies serving seniors. In addition to The Meadowlands, collection points will be located at all New York City Police Precincts throughout December. For additional sites to donate coats please visit www.nycares.org.
