5th Annual Children’s Coat Drive
For those unable to attend the games at Madison Square Garden, coat collection will also take place at select community ice arenas from November 1st to November 30th. For a list of participating local rinks, click here.*
All collected coats will be donated to Garden of Dreams charity partners by current New York Rangers players and alumni in December. To see stories and/or photos from last season’s coat deliveries, click here.
The Garden of Dreams Foundation is a non profit charity that works closely with all areas of Madison Square Garden, including the Rangers, Knicks, Liberty, MSG Media, MSG Entertainment and Fuse to "make dreams come true for kids in crisis". Garden of Dreams partners with local children's hospitals, "wish" organizations and community-based organizations to build on-going, unforgettable programs for children in the tri-state area who are suffering from devastating illness, homelessness, abuse, hunger, extreme poverty and tragedy.
