New York — The Black Car Fund (NYBCF) announced that it is sponsoring the 27th Annual New York Cares Coat Drive again this season. The goal of the non-profit organization ( donation campaign is to help keep New Yorkers warm this winter by collecting as many new and gently used coats as possible, which will benefit up to 100,000 people who rely on the generosity of their neighbors. Coats should be freshly laundered and in good (or new) condition; various sizes for men, women, and children are accepted.

In addition, NYBCF is also running a Food Drive for City Harvest, and it hopes to collect 100 pounds of nonperishable foods that one of City Harvest’s fleet of trucks can pick up and deliver to soup kitchens, food pantries, and other community food programs across the city. Complete guidelines for non-perishable donations are available on City Harvest’s website at

“The holiday season is about giving back, so we remind our members to remember the people in need this season,” says NYBCF Executive Director Ira Goldstein.
