Diaz hoping to collect 100,000 coats to give out this winter

Sure, it's November, but it's been a really warm November, so we haven't heard much about how much it must suck to be without a coat in the winter. But that's going to change. It's almost December, which means it's almost January, and if it's anything like last time we had those months, there's going to eventually be some snow.

So tomorrow, Wednesday, Nov. 30, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. will join the volunteer organization New York Cares and HealthPlus to kickoff the 2011 “Keep The Bronx Warm Month” annual coat drive.

Diaz will announce that during the month of December individuals can drop off and donate coats at his office in the Bronx County Courthouse, local police precincts as well as other public locations.

Last year coat donations declined, leaving 10,000 children city-wide without a warm coat. This year’s goal is to collect 100,000 coats to help meet the unprecedented need in the borough and across the City.

When:  Wednesday, Nov. 30, 2011
Time:   11 a.m.
Where: On the Steps of the 50th Precinct
              3450 Kingsbridge Avenue
