Help take the chill out of winter for New York City students in need by making a donation to the UFT Middle School Division's coat drive. Your monetary donation will go toward the purchase of new winter coats and accessories (scarves, mittens, gloves and hats) for New York City public school students living in temporary housing.

An $18 donation will cover the cost of one brand-new coat for a child. Thanks to your donations, the UFT was able to donate 1,000 coats to New York City children in 2020. 

You may also donate new winter outerwear by shipping or bringing donations to UFT headquarters, attn: Middle School Division, 52 Broadway, New York, NY 10004. (Please note: We can only accept brand-new items.)

You may also mail a check to the above address.

If you have any questions or concerns, contact UFT Vice President for Middle Schools Richard Mantell at
