NEW YORK – An Eastchester car dealership recently contributed to a charitable effort that's bringing aid to thousands of New Yorkers in need.
According to a statement from the Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association (GNYADA), Eastchester Chrysler Jeep Dodge dealership Director Alan Katz provided more than 100 coats to the New York Cares Annual Coat Drive, which collected more than 12,500 coats from car dealerships across the region.
Before delivering the Eastchester coats, the items were sorted by GNYADA volunteers, the statement said.
“Thousands of New Yorkers will be forced to make a choice this winter between buying a warm coat and putting food on the table, heating their homes, or meeting other basic survival needs,” the statement said. “That's why for nearly three decades, New York Cares has collected and distributed winter coats to thousands of men, women and children who would otherwise go cold.”
