The New York Giants, FedEx and New York Cares will host their 18th annual Coat Drive on Sunday, November 24, 2013, when they take on the Dallas Cowboys at MetLife Stadium. Fans are encouraged to bring their new or gently worn coats to any of the FedEx trucks and volunteers located at each stadium entrance.

All coats collected during the drive will be donated to New York Cares, a non-profit organization that meets pressing community needs by mobilizing caring New Yorkers in volunteer service. The coats will then be distributed to men, women and children at homeless shelters, community organizations, centers for battered women and agencies serving senior citizens across the metropolitan area.

This is New York Cares’ 25th annual Coat Drive. Since 1996, the New York Giants have hosted a coat drive at the stadium, helping to warm thousands of their neighbors throughout the cold winter months. Once again, the Giants ask their friends and fans to Join the Team as we assist our neighbors in need.
