QUEENS, NY – Acting Queens Borough President Sharon Lee, in partnership with all 14 Queens Community Boards, today announced the launch of a boroughwide coat drive to support families in need as the cold weather months approach.

“Need continues to grow in the ongoing pandemic, and with rising economic insecurity, so many are bracing for increasingly tough decisions. In times of great need, however, Queens always pulls through, and we are in this together,” said Borough President LEE.  “If you are able, please consider donating new, warm coats — either for adults or children — as the Borough of Families gears up for the winter months ahead.”

From now through Friday, November 13, New Yorkers can drop off new adult and children’s coats in the lobby of Queens Borough Hall at 120-55 Queens Boulevard in Kew Gardens on weekdays between 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM, as well as at the offices of each participating Queens Community Board.

The coat drive overlaps with the ongoing King’s Toy Drive at Borough Hall benefitting children battling cancer, hosted in partnership with the King Fights Cancer Foundation and the family of 7-year-old cancer survivor King Singh of Queens Village. Residents can donate new, unwrapped toys through Friday, October 30.
