Coat Drive


Over the past eight years, the Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association has teamed up with the New York Cares Coat Drive to help tens of thousands of New Yorkers make it through the cold winter. Since our relationship with New York Cares began, our team of participating dealers and our yearly collection total have steadily increased and in 2018, GNYADA delivered more than 8,000 coats to New York Cares, bringing the all-time total to over 50,000!

“I’m extremely proud that our New York auto dealers continue to be the top multi-location coat collecting partner for the New York Cares Coat Drive and that we have achieved a tremendous milestone like this: helping 50,000 New Yorkers in need stay warm in the winter,” said Mark Schienberg, President of GNYADA.

GNYADA offers an enormous thank you to the dealers who participated in the 2018-2019 coat drive, helping the Association remain New York Cares’ single largest corporate coat donor.

GNYADA also thanks the students from Lincoln Technical Institute who assisted with loading the trucks and a special thank you to Freeman Decorating for providing extra helpers and the two 26-foot trucks used to deliver the 8,000 coats to New York Cares.
