NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Over 800 men, women and children will be a little warmer this winter.

Volunteers from 'New York Cares' were handing out coats to those in need in the Bronx on Saturday.

Organizers say 30,000 coats have been collected during the drive, but 100,000 are needed.

If you'd like to help out, just bring new or gently worn coats to any police precinct or any Pink Berry frozen yogurt shop across the city until February 7th.
