I stopped in at the 1st Annual New York Cares Coat Drive Pop Up to drop off a coat donation. Helping others who are without coats every winter is very important to me because my kids and I were once recipients of coat donations during a difficult time. Rapper and actress Niatia “Lil Mama” Kirkland, who is a native of New York, has made a guest appearance at the pop up. I arrived shortly after her appearance so I didn’t get the chance to meet her but it’s wonderful that she is giving back to her city by supporting this cause! You can support the cause too by texting COAT to 41444 or visiting http://www.newyorkcares.org/coats for more information. The pop up is open through Saturday 12/21 until 7:30pm at 111 3rd. Ave. New York, NY.
