During the season of giving, BMW of Westchester is proud to give back to our community. This year we had the opportunity to give back to a local community center in our area.

At BMW of Westchester we are pleased to support Lois Bronz Children’s Community Center’s mission to create a safe nurturing atmosphere in their community.

We Are A New York Cares Coat Drive Donation Location!
What is the Coat Drive?
The Coat Drive is a city-wide effort run by New York Cares which aims to collect 125,000 coats each year and distribute them to New Yorkers who need them most in the colder months. The Coat Drive has been running for 29 years and counting, having collected and distributed 1.8 million winter coats to-date, thanks to generous New Yorkers.
When does the New York Cares Coat Drive begin and end?
The 29th Annual Coat Drive officially kicks off on November 14th and runs through December 31.
What does New York Cares do with the coats collected?
New York Cares works hand-in-hand with a wide variety of organizations across New York City to make sure donated coats are distributed as quickly as possible to New Yorkers who need them. With the help of volunteers, coats are sorted and then distributed to nonprofit social service agencies, public schools, religious institutions, and transitional housing shelters – all of which serve some of our city’s most vulnerable populations. Many coats are also sent to Walk-In Centers, where individuals can pick up coats on specific days and times to help keep them warm during the winter season.
Is there a specific type of coat they are looking for?
Any coat that can keep someone warm is greatly appreciated, but the highest demands are for children’s coats and extra-large men’s coats. If you are considering purchasing a new or gently used coat, or doing a targeted outreach to potential donors, these are always their biggest needs.
