The polar vortex is expected to unleash even more bitter cold in our area in coming days.
And, unfortunately, far too many Bronx residents are unable to afford a warm winter jacket or coat.
To help, New York City Council Member Andy King will distribute coats to the neediest residents of our borough on Sunday, Feb. 22, at , at his district office, 940 East Gun Hill Rd., Bronx.
“There are far too many people – children and seniors included – who have been suffering through these bitter cold days without a coat. It is our hope to bring warmth and comfort to as many needy residents as possible,” said Council Member King who accepted the coats from the Bronx Clergy Taskforce.
The coats, some new or slightly used, range in sizes from age 3 to adult for males and females. Council Member King and his staff will distribute the coats from noon to 2 p.m.
