Every winter, thousands of New Yorkers have to make a difficult choice between buying a warm coat or taking care of other basic needs, such as putting food on the table or keeping the lights on. That’s why Rallye Auto Group has partnered with the Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association (GNYADA) to support the 2013 New York Cares Coat Drive. As part of the support, all five Rallye locations will act as drop-off centers for coat donations from Nov. 12 through February 7th.
“No one should have to choose between warmth and other necessities,” said Joseph Stanco, president of Rallye Auto Group. “It is very important to help those in need, especially around the holidays.”
Rallye is encouraging its employees and its friends to make a donation to this great cause. All coat donations are tax deductable with a prior appraisal, so everybody who donates will receive a receipt for his or her donation.
Since 1989, New York Cares has collected more than 1.4 million gently used coats, distributing them to the city’s most vulnerable residents. The coat drive primarily benefits the homeless, the working poor and the at-risk senior citizens of New York, who use the coats to help survive the harsh, sometimes-freezing temperatures of winter.
