The Yankees have announced that they will partner with New York Cares for a winter coat drive on Wednesday, November 9 from 8:30 a.m. — 3:00 p.m. at the Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square.
The first 1,250 people to donate gently-used coats will receive a pair of tickets to the Army-Rutgers football game at Yankee Stadium on November 12.
The 2011 New York Cares Coat Drive officially kicks off on November 15 and runs through December 31.
“We are very excited to be working with a wonderful organization like New York Cares to help collect coats for those in need this holiday season,” General Partner and Vice Chairperson Jennifer Steinbrenner Swindal said in a released statement. “We hope our incredibly generous fans will join us in Times Square to share in the holiday spirit and help their fellow New Yorkers.”
