On Wednesday, Nov. 30, 2011, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. and state senator Gustavo Rivera joined the volunteer organization New York Cares and Health Plus to kick off the 2011 “Keep The Bronx Warm Month” annual coat drive. Diaz kicked off the coat drive at the 50th Precinct in the Kingsbridge.
|The goal is to collect 100,000 coats this year.|
During the month of December, individuals can donate coats at Diaz’s office in the Bronx County Courthouse, local police precincts, and other public locations.
The 50th Precinct collected the most coats last year, and Commanding Officer Captain Kevin Burke said he hopes they can defend their title and collect the most again.
