If you are going to the game on Sunday, the Jets are running a coat drive. Here are all the details for your consideration.

December 29, 2016 — The New York Jets, in conjunction with Jersey Cares, will hold a Coat Drive prior to their game against the Buffalo Bills on January 1, 2017 at MetLife Stadium.  Fans are encouraged to bring new or gently used coats to benefit Jersey Cares that will be collected at all gates upon entering the stadium.

With the help of the New York Jets, Jersey Cares plans to collect and distribute more than 30,000 new and gently used winter coats to men, women, and children throughout New Jersey in need of coats this winter. Over the past twenty years, Jersey Cares has collected, sorted, and distributed more than 500,000 coats for New Jersey residents through its annual coat drive. More than just an article of clothing, a coat can open opportunities for someone who needs one. It can enable a job-seeker to continue his search during the winter, enable a student to focus on her studies in a cold classroom, or help a senior citizen go out for medication in a storm.

I started JetNation in 2005 and have been a New York Jets season ticket holder since graduating from high school. My dream is to see the New York Jets win the Super Bowl. Until then, I will be right here on JetNation writing, dreaming and talking NY Jets football.
