Hey all,

Our coat drive was a huge success! We collected 100% of our goal -over 350 coats. Thank you all so much for contributing and making this year terrific. The coats have been sent to New York Cares and they will be in the hands of someone who needs it within about a week. 

I’m proud that we were able to come together and make such a big donation. A big shout out to all those who volunteered their time, cars and muscles to getting the job done!

Thanks to all!
