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. Contact Jenny Lewellen.
