New York Cares, the non-profit which organizes citywide days of service and other volunteer opportunities, runs a big holiday coat drive to give warm winter clothing to the needy. This year, it's received 100,000 requests for coats—but it's only on track to half that.

New York Cares executive director Gary Badgley told NY1, "Collections are down by 35 percent. It's hard to tell exactly why." Through Tuesday, the group only collected 8,500 coats. The NY Times reported, "Organizers speculate that people are not donating because the weather until recently has been relatively mild. It could also be an absence of subway ads. This year, the M.T.A. couldn’t provide the space."

Here's a map of drop-off sites where you can donate new or gently worn coats. You can also buy a coat and ship it directly to New York Cares or donate directly—details here.
