The Jersey Cares Coat Drive

For the past 21 years, The Jersey Cares Coat Drive has mobilized the collection and distribution of thousands of "gently used" winter coats to men, women, children and infants in need. In 2016, Jersey Cares collected and distributed more than 30,000 coats throughout the state of New Jersey. Companies, churches, police stations, schools and other organizations collect coats throughout the drive and deliver them to a central location, where volunteers then organize the donated coats and package them for pick-up. Our approved nonprofit partners then pick up and distribute the coats to people in need.

The Jersey Cares Coat Drive runs from November to mid-December each year. Information for the 22nd Annual Jersey Cares Coat Drive will be available in October 2017. Contact Jenny Lewellen.
