NEW YORK, Dec. 14, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Once again, Weatherproof®, a leading apparel manufacturer, will join New York Cares as part of their annual Coat Drive. "Coats for Clunkers" has been brought back due to its major success and outstanding results from last year's promotion.
Coats will be collected throughout December for the 22nd Annual New York Cares Coat Drive. On December 20-22, from 7:30 – 9:30am, at the Amtrak Pavilion and LIRR Concourse at Penn Station, a $100 coupon will be given for every slightly used coat dropped off; this coupon can be redeemed towards the purchase of a new men's or women's Weatherproof® coat on www.coatsforclunkers.com.
In addition to the "Coats for Clunkers" program, Weatherproof® helped kick off the Coat Drive by donating 300 new coats to the Bowery Mission, an organization serving homeless and hungry New Yorkers.
"We're thrilled that Weatherproof® is supporting the New York Cares Coat Drive again this year with a special thank you for people who donate coats," said Gary Bagley, Executive Director of New York Cares. "Coat donations at Penn Station doubled during the Coats for Clunkers program last year, and hundreds of New Yorkers benefited from this special offer. We are also grateful to Weatherproof® for donating new warm coats to the Coat Drive both this year and last."
