Hundreds of Coats To Be Donated

Crown Heights businessman Shaya Gordon is making the cold New York winter warmer for local children.

Crown Heights businessman Shaya Gordon is making the cold New York winter warmer for local children.

With the help of Lubavitch entrepreneur Schneur Bistritzky, Shaya was introduced to Michael Rosenberg of Hawke & Co. Michael has graciously donated hundreds of coats for children in the neighborhood that will be given through the local schools & via a confidential email address.

In 2014 Shaya started giving away coats and told at the time that after noticing quite a few children walking to school without proper winter coats, he teamed up with two friends and purchased hundreds of coats in various sizes and styles.

If you or someone you know needs a coat for their child please send an email to: and let them know the size and gender and a call back number.

Someone will contact you with a convenient pick up location of your choice (your child's school, a local store, etc.). Supplies of some sizes are limited.

I think the local coat gemach consists of used but good condition coats as well as some new donated ones. That is both new ones and decent second-hand ones. Still very good option.

So Kind
So kind of you to do this. Some ppl mentioned there's a Gemach already. The more the merrier! Until every child has what they need. Perhaps if there's overstock from this order it can go to the gemach.
