5th Annual Children\u2019s Coat Drive
The New York Rangers and the Garden of Dreams Foundation have teamed up again to host a children's coat drive in November at Madison Square Garden and various community ice arenas to help keep New York's children warm this winter.

Rangers fans attending games on November 22nd, November 29th, and December 3rd are encouraged to bring new or gently-used children's coats to The Garden for drop-off. At each game, fans who donate a coat will receive a commemorative item. Collection bins will be set up in the mall area outside The Garden box office and in the suite lobbies on the 9th and 10th floors.

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.

A copy of the Foundation's annual report may be obtained, upon request, from the Garden of Dreams Foundation, 2 Penn Plaza, 14th Floor, New York, NY 10121 or from the office of the Attorney General, Charities Bureau, 120 Broadway, New York, NY 10271.

For more information on the Garden of Dreams Foundation, call (212) 465-4170 or visit the foundation's web site at www.gardenofdreamsfoundation.org.

Please note, in addition to coats, you may also donate new winter gloves, scarves and hats.

*Please be aware that only those who donate items at Madison Square Garden prior to games on November 22nd, November 29th, and December 3rd will receive a commemorative item from the New York Rangers and the Garden of Dreams Foundation. Limit one commemorative item per person while supplies last.
